BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Tuesday afternoon WKU received accreditation as an official safe community by the National Safety Council. The program is considered a proven approach of injury reduction in the community from violence, to auto accidents, to reducing falls.
Now that the school has the honor of calling itself a safe community it plans to display it proudly.
"I've already asked our admissions office, put that stamp on the information that we deliver to students we want to be apart of this community. We'll do the same with human resources, right there up front. So that employees know what they're becoming a part of as well," said WKU President, Dr. Gary Ransdell.
WKU now joins the total of 25 safe communities in the U.S.
