Nation IN BRIEF : NATIONWIDE : Drug Arrests Rise Again at Colleges

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

For the third straight year, drug arrests rose in 1994 on American college campuses, according to a survey. Results being released by the Chronicle of Higher Education revealed 6,138 drug violations--23% more than in 1993. This follows increases of 34% in 1993 and 46% in 1992. Drug arrests are up partly because more private colleges are gaining arresting authority for their law enforcement officers, said Douglas F. Tuttle, public safety director at the University of Delaware and president of the International Assn. of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.
