A year after 471 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki published a letter lamenting the level of crime within their vast campus, a committee established to discussing the issue concluded on Friday that the presence of police officers at the facility reduced the crime.
This was achieved through the coordination of the relevant institutional bodies – the university, the judicial authorities and the police – together with the intervention of the police to stop drug trafficking.
"As long as we continue to differentiate between forms of violence, we can not eliminate it in universities," Aristotle's rector Pericles Mitkas told Kathimerini on Friday.
"The University of Aristotle is a creative center for tens of thousands of university and research students, we must help strengthen their work, as well as the work of all universities, universities and violence are incompatible."
