DC Universities Want Their Security Forces To Have Some Police Powers in Nearby Neighborhoods

Some neighbors not happy about disruptive students


Universities throughout the District want to expand the reach of their campus security forces into adjacent neighborhoods to better control disruptive behavior by students and to appease angry neighbors.

The issue is sparking sharp debate, notably at George Washington University's Foggy Bottom campus, where residents are increasingly clashing with student neighbors over late-night parties and other quality-of-life issues, and where school police were admonished for improperly patrolling off private grounds.
