EMU Adding Four Full-time Police Officers

Eastern Michigan University plans to hire four additional full-time police officers, with an eye toward having them on duty by mid-January. 


The officers will be assigned to off-campus patrols, which are currently conducted by two officers. The increase to six officers around Leforge road, just north of campus, will bring additional resources to the area. 

The hiring of new officers is a part of an overall campus safety effort implemented this year.

Other safety measures include expanding the hours of the SEEUS campus escort service, as well as seeking an increase in private security efforts around off-campus apartments.
