You might think it is obvious, whether a police department is accredited, but sometimes it’s not obvious. At The College of the Holy Cross, the college president seems to willy-nilly have the police do what he wants, or ask his staff to arrange that for him — even if college policies are blatantly violated.
This past week I asked three people at Holy Cross if the police are an accredited police agency, and none of them have responded by 10:45 a.m. today, June 21, 2013, whether they know if the police are an accredited police agency. Isn’t that a simple question?
Remember if you are new here: the HC Emergency Response Manual says that peaceful protests are not to be interfered with, but instead of following their own rules about peaceful protests, the Office of the President went way over the top and banned me from campus and retaliated.
Awhile later it occurred to me to ask if the PD at HC is accredited, and by who. People at The College of the Holy Cross do not seem to know if it is accredited.
With protests, instead of following their own written policies in the manual, they turn the police into a corporate security guard and expect the police to enforce violations of written policy.
Something is wrong, so I asked about the accreditation.
