Student Party Riots

Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), 2006

Alcohol-related riots among university students pose a significant problem for police agencies that serve college communities. The intensity of the disturbances may vary. However, the possible outcomes include property destruction and physical violence—a serious threat to community and officer safety. This guide provides a framework for understanding student gatherings. You can use this framework to systematically investigate your local problem of student party riots. You can also use it to develop a wide range of proactive strategies to reduce the potential for student violence and other misconduct. In addition, this guide summarizes interventions used to control past disturbances. You can use these interventions, along with the solutions you develop, to create a comprehensive strategy for addressing your problem. This guide is part of the Problem-Specific Guides series, a series that summarizes knowledge about how police can reduce the harm caused by specific crime and disorder problems.
