As a student and resident of Washington, D.C., I am writing to you in regards to the Special Police Officer Enhanced Security Amendment Act of 2015. Please strongly oppose the piece of the bill that allows campus police forces to expand their jurisdiction off-campus (subsection 1202.5).
This provision will greatly harm students and worsen the living conditions for students in our city. Expanding the jurisdiction of campus police forces increases the chance that student rights off-campus are violated and greatly reduces students’ right to privacy and comfort within their own home.
Student across D.C. are rallying to oppose this provision and will do so until it is struck from the bill. Again, please oppose subsection 1202.5 of the Special Police Officer Enhanced Security Amendment Act of 2015.
Thank you for your time and service.
