UR proposing to arm off-campus peace officers

A proposal from the University of Rochester would add three armed peace officers stationed at Eastman campus, Riverside campus and S. Plymouth by Brooks Crossing.

This would mean armed police will be interacting with residents in the neighborhoods that the UR is gentrifying. The connection between gentrification and an increase in policing is well documented.

Attached is the proposal and more information on UR peace officers.
