BOSTON — More students than ever before are now using the Northeastern University Police Department’s (NUPD) off-campus personal safety escort service, after the department increased the frequency of the after-hours shuttle service earlier this year in response to an increase in demand, news@Northeastern reported.
NUPD Lt. Leon Romprey noted that 3,155 students used the off-campus personal safety escort service in September 2014, up from 1,420 in September 2013. Last month, 4,616 students were transported, more than double the number of students (1,932) who utilized the service in October 2013, according to the report.
“This is not a convenience service. It’s a safety service,” Romprey said. “Our students are on campus working and studying at all hours of the night, and we want to get them home safely.” For the full story, click here.
