wildcardjack: In Texas the state university cops are licensed peace officers with jurisdiction in any county their employing university has a campus.
Click Click D'oh: George Washington Univeristy Police are sworn police officers, not security officers. This is just an issue about giving them extended jurisdiction. Most police departments around the nation have overlapping jurisdiction agreements so they can operate a certain distance into another agencies area.
Infernalist: My heart breaks for those poor college kids, being forced to be considerate of their neighbors and denied the right to be obnoxiously loud at 3am.
ToastTheRabbit: DRASoooooo... make people who could NOT make the cut to be police officers into basically police officers. gotcha
Target Builder: Why the fark does GWU need a campus police force? It's not an isolated campus located in the middle of nowhere, it's a few city blocks in the densely populated center of one of the largest cities in America.
snocone: /this would be so much easier if you citizens would just accept authority, it is good for you//oh, and hand those gunz, mmkay?
iheartscotch: This is actually a pretty compelling need. A large number of campuses, nationwide, have jokes for campus police.
cwheelie: Infernalist: My heart breaks for those poor college kids, being forced to be considerate of their neighbors and denied the right to be obnoxiously loud at 3am.THIS!!!annoyed the fark out of me even when I was in college. No I wasn't studying, just lazy....snocone: /this would be so much easier if you citizens would just accept authority, it is good for you//oh, and hand those gunz, mmkay?This would be so much easier if you citizens would just accept resonsibility for acting like an adult and being respectful of your fellow (sleeping) neighbors
dali's perspective: Wait, this is a new problem? Didn't the college students have late, loud parties in the 90's, the 80's, the 70's, the 60's, the 50's.........
