    Cool Correct preposition

    Dear teachers,

    I still have great difficulty in using the following prepositions in the following sentences. Can someone englighten me on this ?

    1. This accident was reported TO the New York Police Station or THis accident was
    reported AT the New York Police Station.

    Which preposition is better : " To the New York Police Station or at the New York Police
    Station " ?

    2. He had brought his motorcycle to be used ON campus or He had brought his
    motorcycle to be used in the campus. Which preposition is correct : "On" campus or
    "in "campus ?

    Thanks
    Eager Beaver

    Re: Correct preposition

    To the police, but at the police station.

    On campus.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
