Blue light emergency phone towers are essential for universities campuses. They have been providing security on campuses for at least three decades. These towers prevent, to some degree, crimes and also help in emergencies by providing direct access to police stations/campus security. Therefore, it is important to locate these towers where appropriate and to also know how many of these towers are sufficient for a certain area based on area size. The main tools used in this project are Euclidean Distance, Average Nearest Neighbor, Raster Calculator, Raster to Polygon, Intersect tool, and Viewshed Analysis. This research is intended for use by any college or university authorities charged with campus safety. It is expected to help them identify the locations that need more, or less, blue light emergency towers. This will assure the safety of their students and help them be confident that all areas are covered with these towers.
