Scott Schneider was quoted in Forbes on June 11, 2015. The article “Push For Campus Safety Means More Guns, Officers, Security Spending” discussed the rise in public safety officers on college campuses and the inevitable boost to public safety budgets.
“Fifty years ago, universities would have come out and said, ‘Public safety is not what we do — that’s not our core mission,” said Scott. “The ever-evolving and expanding mission of the university now includes some level of being a protector.”
“Are these differences radically bringing down instances of crime that affect members of the university community? The answer is I don’t know,” Scott said. “But what you may be getting is more resources directed at the investigation and ultimately the arrest and the prosecution.”
