OCT 22 FROSTBURG UNIVERSITY-- Frostburg University police has a mission of making and maintaining a safe environment for students to "work, study, learn and live" but when a random selection of Frostburg students were asked, they voiced different opinions.
Giovanni Gallinat, undecided undergrad from Ft.Washington Maryland was asked if he felt confident in campus police and he replied "Not at all! They just arrested me two weeks ago". According to Gallinat, police approached him as he was standing on a sidewalk parallel to Annapolis Hall about two weeks ago. He was charges with failure to obey orders by a police officer, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and second degree assault.
On another part of campus, mass communications major, Malik Embree from Baltimore, Maryland questions the police department's physical potential to handle a situation. Embree stated that about a week ago, he witnessed an altercation where three police officers were having difficulty taking grip of a situation against a rather small student. Malik says, "I would call my homeboys before I call 9-1-1".
Pernell Parents, information technology major from Baltimore says he's "not so much" confident in the performance of the Frostburg campus police. Parents shared "If I had to rate it on a scale from 1-10, I would rate them at about a six. I sometimes see them using excesive force to control situations and make decisions. It's not much of a give and take relationship with them. Instead, we fear them".
It seems that a large amount of conflicting issues between campus police and it's students. In conclusion, these three students all agreed when saying that they do not in fact feel comfortable in the performance of the campus police at Frostburg.
