CAMPUS SECURITY The sign on the quonsct hut reads, "Campus Traffic and Security" but the purpose of the office goes far beyond those simple words. “Our job is to protect lives and property on campus," says Cheif Don Wortman, an 18-year veteran of the campus police force. Wortman says his department (comprised of 10 uniformed officers, one meter-maid, two administrative assistants and the 25 man student security force! is responsible for traffic control, providing building security, calming family disturbances, responding to alarms and dealing with criminal investigation. "We arc a small force, responsible for a population of approximately 12,000, including faculty, staff, students, student dependents and visitors," Wortman pointed out. “However, if there is a major problem, such as a really serious crime, we ask for and receive assistance from city police and the sheriff's office. It doesn't happen often, but the other departments arc there when we need them." The department usually operates with one man in a vehicle on traffic patrol, while another walks the campus. "We can catch a lot more when we're walking the shadows,' said Wortman. 'Everyone thinks our main concern is writing tickets, but that's just a hell of a headache." Wortman went on to say, "The student security force is a great asset to us. We train them in various areas of law enforcement and they operate as our eyes and cars. They are in constant radio contact when they're working and we’re always prepared to back them up." During his 18 years on the force, Wortman has seen a lot of changes. "The department, as a whole, is much more professional. We are law enforcement officers, not just night watchmen. All officers are required to attend the Montana Law Enforcement Academy, which makes us more capable of investigating complaints so we don't have to flood the city police with a lot of unnecessary work. "Things have really mellowed out since the 60s. The students today, I feel, arc here to study, not to party," Wortman pointed out. "There's a lot less hassle now than then." However, there arc problems that don't seem to go away. There is a lot of vandalism, for example, aimed both at students and the school. Basically, the damage consists of attacks against vehicles in parking lots, dorm room damage, and destruction of trees and signs. "I think drinking has a lot to do with it," Wortman said. "But there arc a lot less problems now then when the drinking age was 21. When we had the 21 age limit, students were running around in cars DEWS CAW 63
