Community Policing

Community Oriented Police Services Program 

(C.O.P.S)

The Community Oriented Police Services (COPS) program was created to build positive relationships between police officers and the communities they serve. To foster this connection, KSU Police Officers are assigned specific areas on campus for regular patrol and special events. This affords faculty, staff, and students to communicate directly to law enforcement any issues concerning potential criminal activity within academic buildings and residence halls.

In an effort to encourage positive interaction between Police Services, faculty, staff, and students, the university offers a variety of crime prevention and awareness programs to include:

  • Personal Safety
  • Alcohol and Drug Awareness
  • A.L.I.C.E  (Alert, Lockdown, Information, Counter, and Evacuation) regarding active threat response

To learn more about the COPS program, or to schedule a presentation for your group regarding general crime prevention and personal safety, please contact our full-time Community Resource Officer, Tricia Knoles at 330-672-0370.
