In order for the University Police Officers to get to know the students better, and for the students to get to know the officers better, the ADOPT-A-COP program was formed. Each residence hall has an officer assigned to establish a community policing atmosphere within it. The officers become liaisons with the Resident Advisors (R.A.'s) and talk with the students at hall meetings and special events.
