Calif. College Wants Sheriff's Deputies to Patrol Campus

May 28, 2013  | 

Officials at Solano Community College are negotiating with the Solano County Sheriff's Office to have its officers replace campus police.

There are currently only five part-time officers at SCC that can only monitor the campus until 6 p.m., the Times Hearld reports.

Meanwhile, the sheriff’s department, which has more resources than the college, provides some limited coverage on campus, with SCC officials hoping that the department can provide more full-time patrol services on July 1.

The board of trustees will discuss the matter in June. If approved, the department would assign armed and trained, but not sworn officers to monitor SCC.

I don't understand why a campus would have armed security guards instead of sworn personnel. What's the point? With campus violence happening on a regular basis on our nation's higher education institutions, it would seem wise to have a dedicated PD. If not, contract a local PD or SO. Not to take anything away from security officers, but, when someone needs to go to jail a sworn official is needed.
