Any school adminstration who gave the "we don't need guns... that would never happen here... this isn't the city..." excuse is not sleeping comfortably tonight.

All of these "extra" patrols are referred to as 'security' below, not 'police'. For their sake, I hope they are not doing these 'security' patrols looking for the murder suspect with only a flashlight and radio! :shock: :shock:

Campus security heightened
By Associated Press, 9/20/2003 13:29

BANGOR, Maine (AP) Maine colleges are focusing on campus security in the aftermath of the slaying of Colby College senior Dawn Rossignol.

A spokesman said that even before Rossignol's body was found near the Waterville campus, the University of Maine was on heightened alert because of an August abduction attempt on the Orono campus.

The director of the UMaine public safety department, Noel March, said campus police are sharing information they have collected about that attack with state law enforcement officials to determine if it is related to the Colby slaying.

On the Waterville campus, Colby's security office has added officers and patrols. Other schools are also taking extra precautions.

''We've stepped up our coverage of our satellite parking lots and we are making more frequent stops,'' said security chief Bob Harper of the University of Maine at Farmington. ''We've notified our student population to be more alert, to be prepared and to walk in pairs.''

Dozens of investigators have been checking more than 200 leads and tips about the death of the 21-year-old Rossignol, who police say was abducted sometime after leaving her Colby dorm room around 7:20 a.m. on Tuesday.

Her body was discovered near the Messalonskee Stream in Oakland late Wednesday morning.

Maine Public Safety Department spokesman Stephen McCausland said a mobile command post on the Colby campus would be open through the weekend from 8 a.m. to midnight.

Patrols have increased at Husson College in Bangor.

''We've stepped up our security on campus,'' said Rocco Santa Fe, chief of security at Husson. ''We now have an unmarked security car on campus with a security officer inside who is doing regular [patrols ] at night. During the day we're just patrolling the campus looking for suspicious vehicles and suspicious suspects.''
