Establishing a university police department

 

Johns Hopkins and the Maryland legislature have decided that legislation to establish a university police department requires further consideration and should be moved to an interim study rather than acted upon this year. We believe this decision will help inform our response to rising crime and other security threats, and allow us to continue important conversations about building a true model for constitutional and community policing. We invite your continued feedback and will keep you informed as the process moves forward.
