UO to Discuss Arming Campus Police

EUGENE, Ore. — The University of Oregon is holding its first in a series of public forums to discuss whether its police officers should be armed when on duty.

The school’s police department became a police agency last year. Since the spring, the department has met with students, faculty, and staff to discuss the possibility of university police officers carrying guns.

The UO is currently the only university in the Pac-12 without armed officers.

If you want to voice your opinion on the matter, the public forum is Monday, Feb. 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Global Scholars Hall Great Room, located at East 15th Avenue and Moss Street on the UO campus.

    To the ‘Decision Makers';

    Wrap up the talking. It’s time to act.
    Say yes to fully arming and weaponizing
    your ‘police officers’.
