1/14/2011: Mat Wolf has a story in the ODE on an armed UO Police Force. DPS Director Doug Tripp has told various groups different things, he now makes it clear that he wants guns. What will it cost?
On Nov. 17, the Emerald obtained documents of what appears to be a budget discussion about the training and equipping of a sworn police agency, but financial figures for that budget were redacted.
How the fuck can UO redact cost information? You can track the bill in the Oregon Legislature here. Meanwhile the NY Times has a series on the real campus safety problem and how we might deal with it, here. This one is particularly good.
