(THE COLLEGE FIX) — Westfield State University apparently used to have a hate crime epidemic. Not any more.

After the Massachusetts school installed 400 security cameras, the weekly rate of people reporting bias and hate crimes there dropped by a whopping 93 percent.

During an 11-week period during the fall 2017 semester there were 23 incidents reported. Since the cameras were installed, there’s only been three complaints.
