As most of you know, the White Student Union of Towson University will soon begin to patrol the campus as a way to make it safer. Far from being a vigilante group, the patrollers won’t play police and they will help students of any race. Here are the stated goals of the patrol.
Our first goal is to identify potential crimes being committed and to get a proper description of the alleged offender.
Once a crime has been identified our responsibility is to call the local authorities to
report the crime. We are not police officers and our role is to leave arrest and
forceful action to those who have been properly trained.
Once the authorities have been notified our mission is to help the victim of the
crime. All patrol members have received at least basic First Aid and CPR
training and several of our patrol members are veterans of the United States
military and have more advanced medical training. We will do our best to comfort
and provide basic first aid to crime victims until our heroic Baltimore county
first responders arrive.
