Even though the public perception of traditional campus life has changed little during the past two decades, the task of providing for a safe living and working environment on the campuses of the nations’ multitude of institutions of higher learning has changed dramatically.

As we enter the twenty-first century, campus police agencies now form the core of specialized protection and law enforcement at postsecondary institutions in the United States and Western Europe. This evolution has seen the campus police shift from providing little more than a campus watch function to one in which highly trained and specialized professional law enforcement officers engage in law enforcement, crime prevention, and service-related functions.

Although campus and municipal police departments share many of the same tactical and organizational characteristics, and both focus on engaging in crime control, order maintenance, and service to the community, campus police do face challenges not encountered by local law enforcement. And the transitory nature of the college campus, particularly when combined with a large physical plant, creates unique problems that campus police must address daily through tactical and administrative considerations.

This is why it is important to consider those evolving issues that may have a direct impact on the levels of service being provided the campus community and ensuring that campus law enforcement and safety officers receive training not only on par with, but sometimes exceeding, the training received by their municipal counterparts.

Our conference proceedings have been designed for campus law enforcement personnel, as well as students, staff. And campus administrators seeking to improve their relationships with law enforcement.

Participants will receive instruction related to various issues facing today’s campus law enforcement officer and their impact on the manner in which they interact with members of the community, with a special emphasis on those interactions in the campus environment. Training sessions have been designed to provide law enforcement officers with greater tools, knowledge and skills for interacting with people, particularly on college and university campuses. Speakers for each session bring a wealth of experience and training in their particular backgrounds and have been chosen for their specific knowledge in the chosen subject area. All training sessions for this program will be held at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Police Department, located at 585 East Pleasant Street, Amherst, MA 01003-9600.
