Colleges Report Increases in Arrests for Drug and Alcohol Violations.
Nicklin, Julie L.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n38 pA39-A41 May 28 1999
Arrests for violations of drug/alcohol laws at colleges and universities rose 7.2 and 3.6%, respectively, from 1996 to 1997. Campus police attribute the increases not to increased drug and alcohol use but to more aggressive enforcement. However, some health researchers feel usage has risen. Campus weapons violations and forcible rape arrests have also increased; other crimes have decreased. (MSE)
