70% Of All Arrests in Durham, NH in 2018 Were UNH Students


Here’s a neat little factoid. According to the Union Leader, “of the people taken into custody (In Durham NH), 675 of the 968 identifiable parties arrested by police in 2018 were enrolled in classes at the university.” That’s almost 70% of all arrests?

Have the budget boosters who pimp the fiscal benefits of taxpayer bailouts to UNH ever subtracted the real cost of this statistic?

How much are we spending on public safety dollars to arrest and process misbehaving students?

Many of whom are voting here (on our budgets or those who write them) but paying out-of-state tuition?
