LU is the school that just keeps on giving. *Insert hugely sarcastic eyeroll here*

LU is not the only school to game the safety statistics.

There’s a documentary called The Hunting Ground about this topic. In that, and another documentary I can’t recall the name of atm, there were college employees who described an environment that made it (intentionally) as hard as possible to report rape. Or, if you did report, they’d just fail to follow up over and over, assuming the person will eventually just give up.

I can see the benefit of college police forces because it does allow some leniency with lower level crimes- just stupid things college kids do. But I think there’s certainly a time and place to call in the police. Like in the other thread where people are pouring chemicals on people’s skin to the point of disfigurement. Times like that.

My school (Carnegie-Mellon) when I was there (late '80s) hired a retired police captain from one of the local Pittsburgh city precinct who had retired. The campus cops were half campus *cops* (arrest authority), half campus security. Felonies got directed to the Pittsburgh city police as far as I could tell, OTOH, the city police redirected things like noise complaints to the campus cops (who made a point of getting to know the presidents of the fraternities personally). A good balance, expect when the Liquor Control Board officers got involved.
