Temple University Police Expand Patrol Areas

University wants to raise the quality of life around campus.

Temple University is expanding the boundaries of the area where its campus police force patrols, hoping to raise the quality of life in the neighborhoods surrounding university’s main campus along North Broad Street.

NBC 10 reports:

“With Temple Police providing the same level of protection and responsiveness to students and residents alike, we are confident that the extended patrol zone will create a safe environment and strengthen the quality of life for everyone who lives around Main Campus,” said Charles L. Leone, executive director of Campus Safety Services, to the Temple News.

The western patrol borders were moved to 18th Street from 16th Street. The remaining patrol boundaries — east to 9th Street, north to Susquehanna Avenue and south to Jefferson Street — remain the same.

The extended boundaries began as a pilot program in August.
