A major upgrade is happening this week to improve the lighting around the campus of the University of Cincinnati.

Nearly 400 yellow city streetlights are being replaced with white LED lights that shine twice as bright as the human eye.

This is the second phase of the project that will see 30 streets will be improved. 

Campus police say this will help reduce crime, which has been on the decline in the last 10 years.

During the initial phase of the project, more than 300 lights were upgraded.

Other crime reduction initiatives include a bi-monthly meeting between campus police and Cincinnati police.

UCPD has also added 33 officers since April 2014, and safety ambassadors.
