UOPD chief sets his first meet-and-eat with students

Matthew Carmichael

The University of Oregon’s new police chief knows that a good relationship between the police and students is a key to a safe campus.

He also knows a key to students giving time is food, preferably of the free variety.

With that in mind, UOPD Chief Matt Carmichael is buying the pizza for his first Chief’s Student Advisory Council meeting, Thursday, Oct. 13, at 6 p.m. in the EMU Lewis Room (Room 023).

All students are invited, and the chief hopes to hear questions and thoughts about campus safety, security or policing generally.

"To meet student needs, you’ve got to have student input," Carmichael said. "We have students from all over the world, and we won’t know their perspectives on safety and policing unless we ask them."

He’ll hold the meeting monthly and at the first meeting will find out what future dates work best for students. Carmichael said he’s hoping that active, invested and energetic students will turn out and keep coming.
