Security for students will be enhanced . . . by students!
In an effort to boost the level of safety and security for students in the nighttime hours, the Division of Student Affairs and the University Police are implementing a new patrol they plan to call STATE, Students Taking Action Toward Enforcement.  UPD will hire students to help provide "an extra set of eyes" through campus patrols between 8 p.m. and 2 p.m.  Students selected for the paid positions will be trained to observe suspicious activity and report it to UPD officers; they will have no authority for enforcement. Everyone at ASU wants the campus experience to be safe, and this is a technique that has been used successfully at other universities.
