PSU Cops to Stay Armed

Portland Ore – Portland State University officials are not planning to disarm the campus police force, despite urging from students.

After a board of trustees meeting acting university President Stephen Percy announced a new “holistic” plan for campus safety.

There will be more oversight and training for officers on campus following an internal review of the campus police.

The plan also includes strengthening the security of campus buildings with electronic access pads and hiring 4 additional unarmed campus safety officers to bring the total number to 10.

PSU will retain its 10 armed police officers.
