No Campus Police
We, the undersigned Humboldt State University students, staff and faculty, demand that HSU defund and abolish the Humboldt State University campus police. Overwhelming evidence supports the facts of campus police causing more harm than good. An overwhelming majority of students of color and LGBTQI2+ have reported feeling unsafe and victimized by HSU'S campus police. There is no statistically evidence that campus police has reduced instances of theft, violence against students or sexual assault.
As a replacement, we demand a student lead security team, a training program for RA's for situational diffusion, prevention of sexual assaults on campus, and emergency non-police responses to substance abuse and substance overdose.
