New study reveals Yale University to be least safe college in the state

New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A new study finds that Yale University is the least safe college in Connecticut, and one of the least safe in the country.

SafeHome.org says it used data from the U.S. Department of Justice, FBI, and U.S. Department of Education.

The results say that Yale has the 11th highest violent crime rate in the country. The study says Southern Connecticut State University is the safest college in the state.

In a statement, the President of Yale University said, “Our just-released annual security/crime report (Clery) shows our campus has very low crime rates, and almost no violent crime. Crime on our campus has been trending steadily down for more than a decade.”
