West Virginia University and the greater Morgantown area are teaming up to become the state's first officially recognized "Safe Community."
WVU President Gordon Gee and local officials signed a letter this week committing them to submitting an official application within the next year.
Organizers say the WVU-Morgantown collaboration would be the first among 30 places in the U.S. that now claim the "Safe Community" title.
