Ok lets get a few things straight. Campus "police" work is not and never will be equivalent to municipal police work. End of story. Anyone who thinks different is just fooling themselves. Campus "police" is campus police anywhere you go, the same sh*t happens. Campus police is just a bullsh*t job that most of us use while we are waiting for a real police job. Those of you who are 35+ and still dreaming that your town will call you....I have news for you, Its not going to happen. You might want to consider going back to college and changing careers. And to those of you who are content being 35+ and still working at a college, good luck convincing people that you are a "real" cop. It should tell you something when you need to convince you own family that "you are a cop". I did campus police work for a while and I got tired putting on that uniform, looking in the mirror and trying to convince myself I was a cop.

Yeah like how my agency does Ch. 90 and carries firearms, oh but you don't shoot forgot about that!
Bottom Line is Brandeis is not the premier agency in CAMPUS law enforcement, and you are arguably in the same bracket. Just keep proving it.....................................

Get in here and shut us off.............PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1- So because you carry a gun and can make a MV stop you feel more like a cop? :roll: You still work for a campus.
2- Nobody ever said that Brandies was the "premier" agency. There is no such thing when talking about campus police.
3- Oh boo hoo hoo, "Get in here and shut us off" becasue I can't take it. Mommy please make them stop insulting my job, I am a real cop really I am.

We are not talking about one campus being better than another anymore, now the argument is the fact that some people obviously think COLLEGE Police work is not "real" like a town cop. I work as a full time cop at a college and part time in a town and I am just as busy at the college with "real police work." Maybe your department doesnt respond to domestics, fights, drug investigations, sexual assaults, and other "real" police calls, but we do, and I know many other College PD's do, so don't generalize and say College Police work isnt like real police work!
Really? You are very busy at the college? Huh? According to your colleges Jean Clery Act your department is not that busy. Unless you are talking about all of those big bad liquor violations you guys dealt with. Wow that sure is REAL police work.

I am sorry John J you must be right...when there is a domestic assault or rape on Campus it is totally different then when it is in a town...how dumb of me to think it was the same...
I am sorry what is it you do over there again? Are you one of the six patrolmen or are you one of the five Reserve officer / Dispatchers. You are a Reserve Campus Police officer aren't you? That would explain a lot. :roll:
