Kent State University has one of the safest campuses in the nation, according to the FBI's annual Uniformed Crime Report. A nationwide study by the Consortium for Higher Education Campus Crime Research ranked Kent State in the lowest two percent of crime for universities of comparable size.
On the Kent Campus, Kent State Police Services is the only nationally accredited law enforcement agency at an Ohio public university and was one of the first university police departments in the nation to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies. The designation recognizes the Kent State police department as a select organization that consistently demonstrates excellence and serves as a model for police, sheriff and other law enforcement agencies around the country.
Kent State Police Services is empowered by the State of Ohio to enforce state laws and is directed by the university's board of trustees to enforce certain rules and regulations of the university. Essentially, the police officers at the university have the same authority as their state and municipal counterparts.
