Home / Tufts as an Anti-Racist Institution / Campus Safety and Policing
The Campus Safety and Policing workstream released its final report in February 2021.
Campus Safety and Policing
The Working Group on Campus Safety and Policing is one of several workstreams within Tufts’ strategic priority to become an anti-racist institution. Over the last year, under the leadership of our Interim Chief, Chip Coletta, the Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) has engaged Margolis Healy, a leading national consultancy for campus safety, to assess all aspects of the TUPD operation. Many actions have already been taken to strengthen the department in key areas such as policies and procedures, training, recruiting, partnership with key university departments, and community engagement. The Working Group now has the opportunity to build on this work and develop a clear strategic direction for the department, with clear organizational expectations, that can then be implemented by a new, permanent chief.
