Exploring Campus Public Safety

Quarter-long, Course
Exploring Campus Public Safety
This course explores the multitude of roles, responsibilities and services provided by the Stanford Department of Public Safety. Classes will provide opportunities to engage in discussion and gather insights through experiential learning. A range of topics will be covered regarding police-community interactions and types of response, as well as scenarios involving traffic stops, a field sobriety testing lab, and the use of force. These sessions are intended to enrich your knowledge of working in campus public safety, cultivate relationships, and foster understanding with the community to which we all belong. This class meets Wednesday nights from 5:30 - 7:30pm in the Winter Quarter, beginning January 5. Students taking the course for 1 unit of credit will be required to submit a 2-page reflection essay for each class that includes external source material (recommended resource list will be provided). While this course is open to all students throughout the University, the units will not accrue to Law Degree Candidates for credit toward a degree in Law (JD, JSM, JSD, or LLM). Prerequisites: Application and basic background check; minimum 18 years of age.
