URI seeks input on whether to arm campus police

Posted: Updated:

By: ABC6 News Staff


The University of Rhode Island is seeking public input on whether campus police should carry guns. The University is holding the first of three forums on the subject Monday.

The State Board of Education voted in May to allow public colleges to arm their police officers. The decision came after URI went into lock down last spring, over fears that someone was roaming campus with a gun. 

No gunman was ever found.
