Cops on Campus

Rethinking Safety and Confronting Police Violence

Over the last five years, headlines have thrust campus police departments from relative obscurity into the national spotlight. Campus constituents have called for campus police, as a tangible manifestation of the War on Crime within the sphere of higher education, to be disarmed, defunded, and abolished. Using a multidisciplinary approach that draws from the fields of history, American studies, ethnic studies, criminology, higher education, and sociology, Cops on Campus provides critical perspectives on the organization and social consequences of campus policing. Chapters uncover details of the structure and culture of university police—some of the best-funded and largest private police forces in the nation—and examine the institution in relation to racialized and gendered violence, racial profiling, and the surveillance of marginalized communities on and off campus. The volume also features interviews with students, staff, and faculty activists to showcase efforts to redefine and reimagine campus safety and explore alternatives for the future.

Reviews

"A critical, multidisciplinary analysis of university police. University students, employees, and neighbors should read this book to learn why campus police have become so common, and why they continue to meet resistance."—Stuart Schrader, author of Badges without Borders: How Global Counterinsurgency Transformed American Policing

"The true site of learning is not the college classroom but in the spatial and social borders enforced by campus police. Cops on Campus tracks the evolution of these forces from their founding to the present. Chapters ask why educational resources are dramatically devoted to restricting access, repressing political dissent, and violently shaping the contours of higher education. Academic workers struggling for living wages, housing, and dignity explain why they also challenge the expansion of the carceral state. As this book powerfully argues, the fight to transform higher education will redefine the meaning of security far beyond the campus gates."—Christina Heatherton, coeditor of Policing the Planet: Why the Policing Crisis Led to Black Lives Matter
