Of course parents, students and faculty over at Bradley University are concerned about the increase in crime on campus, and rightfully so. As a result, they have increased police patrols and added other security measures. However, now the Bradley Police are providing a shuttle service. How sad is that, really?
In a City the size of Peoria, on a campus the size of Bradley University (a school that is considered one of the best), crime is so bad, that students need to be coddled with a shuttle service? Part of the college experience is the walkability of the campus. How embarrassing for Peoria, Bradley students are officially too good to walk through our City.

Bradley University begins free nighttime shuttle service for students, faculty, staff
Peoria, IL (November 27, 2012) – Bradley University is launching a shuttle service for students, faculty and staff in the Bradley Police patrol area starting this evening.
Specially trained students employed by the Bradley Police Department’s Student Patrol will drive the Hilltop Safety Cruiser, a van that accommodates up to 6 passengers. The free shuttle will operate from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. seven days a week in the patrol area that extends from Moss Avenue to Columbia Terrace and Western Avenue to Sheridan. The shuttle will be radio dispatched by calling 309 677-2800 and also will provide flag-down rides. Students, faculty and staff must display a valid Bradley ID.
The Hilltop Safety Cruiser will circulate through the patrol area but will not have defined stops. The new service supplements the walking escort patrol that has been available to students for several years.
The Hilltop Safety Cruiser will operate when the University is in session during the regular academic year. Source
