  • Integrating Crime Victims' Issues Into College and University Curricula: When it comes to the care and support of victims, everyone has a role to play. Campus law enforcement working cooperatively with other university departments and community providers can have significant impact on the appropriate response to victimization. 
  • Women in Policing: March is National Women's History Month. The role of women in our campus police and city, state and local law enforcement is a critical one, but research shows women continue to be underrepresented. According to the recently released Campus Law Enforcement Survey findings from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, during the 2011-2012 school year, about one in six sworn campus police officers were women (16.9% in 2004-05 and 17.5% in 2011-12).
