CGDE BLUE Stereotyping the men in creates a widening gap by Robin Hibbard The men in blue at ISU are not the most popular group of people on campus. The reason is apathy due to stereotypification on the students part. When they recover your stolen property, they're angels of mercy. When they bust your friend for possession of an hallucinogenic substance, they're "campus pigs." When they enforce the laws they are supposed to, you complain. What does a student expect from a law officer? lf he doesn't abide by the laws, he probably doesn't expect anything. These are the habitual "cop badmouthers" at which I am pointing my finger. There would be no Univer- sity Police if the student did not violate the laws. Last December, a former ISU student, Marsha Guingrich, fatally shot and killed an ISU psychology counselor, Dr. William J. Carson. Campus police were on the scene within a matter of minutes. Reporters from the media were not given details immediately following the shooting because Safety and Security preferred to make a statement of the facts in detail in order to more thoroughly inform the people. The Statesman exploited the issue of being denied immediate information, mistook the denial as an insult, and they attempted to make the case seem like a cover-up. Not only did they bicker on information release, but they placed President Landini in ignorance of the facts. They failed to print the additional item which they were told, the Kern was merely acting in a manner conducive to his job, and Landini was informed of as many positive facts as were available, and it was the President's decision to withhold information until more reliable facts were known. He was thoroughly informed throughout the entire in- vestigation. The Palmore case of the impounded vehicle, which the Statesman covered, was another misunderstanding, specifically on Palmore's part. The young lady was told the whereabouts of the car, according to Safety and Security. Palmore told the Statesman she was not, and the car was being hid from her until she paid S30 in parking fines. Palmore was again told by Safety and Security director George Kern where her car was a few days later. She also told the Statesman that her car was parked only a couple of hours in a loading zone at Lincoln Quad. The director of Lincoln, Greg Lobisser, told the Security office the vehicle had been there four days and had to be removed in order to necessitate food service loading. lt seems to be a matter of opinion, as I see it, as to who is telling the truth or who has their facts twisted! As a result, a new policy has now been established: instead of holding one's car until the airy Polic uniform ticket assessment is paid tor other arrangements madej, the student is assessed at the Security office and the vehi- cle is released. Payment is then between the student and the business office. Also questioned was the "double jeopardy" parking situation on campus. Actually, there is no such thing. ISU has legal jurisdiction to enforce the laws on ISU property, including the streets passing through the campus. The city has authorization to ticket on campus since the campus is within city police jurisdiction. ISU police write up city tickets for vehicles violating city ordinances and also ticket cars when a university policy has been broken. Those who are double ticketed are not charged of the same offense by both ISU and city police, but are generally charged of a parking violation and a decal violation. How many times has the average student found pink tickets attached to his her windshield? You will probably answer "too many times," but it seems there is no way out of this one. I am like everyone else . . . a step saved is a step earned. I like parking closer to where I am going, but student lots don't quite enable you to do that in every in- stance. Non-status lots would not only remedy this situa- tion, but would cut the ticket revenue down by a great percentageg neverless, SGA had little luck with the issue, and faculty and administrators, the majority, that is, did not press the issue either. ISU police do more than write tickets, however. Over 5004 of the situations university police deal with are theft related. The list of items stolen during the past academic year were valued at S58,000. They also transfer patients to the infirmary or area hospitals when necessary. They un- lock doors for students leaving keys inside of cars and buildings, and unlock building doors on campus if you need to get in. Locating lost persons is another matter they handle if it arises. Another task they perform is delivering emergency messages when it is needed. tAlso, see chart on opposite page.j The officer's job never ends, there are three shifts which work a 24-hour day to serve the needs of students and others having access to the university. Married student housing is also covered a large percentage of the time. As is evident, the advantages of having our university police are many, and the duties they perform for the students and personnel at ISU cover a wide scope of needs. The job is thankless, yet what they do is for you. I hope one can appreciate having them around as I do, and realize it is important not to trust one source, namely, the Statesman, or any other media source too whole-heartedly before one passes judgement upon important issues.
