Cops Off Campus

[image description]: a white university tower on an aqua background with flames coming out its windows and a red wedge entering the top of the tower and slicing off its top. The words "COPS OFF CAMPUS" are on the wedge, and on the bottom right it says "A project of Abolition.University."

How much does your university contribute to policing? How much does policing rely on your university? Who does it police? Where does it police?

If you don’t have answers to these questions, you probably want them. We want them too. 

Do you think it’s important for students to know how to find answers to these questions? Do you think it’s important for communities to find answers to them when police have jurisdiction that goes beyond the university campus?

The Cops Off Campus research project is a way of collecting this data to instigate a larger public conversation about the relations between universities and policing. We are looking to help instructors, students, organizers, and communities to ask questions about how much money and how many other resources universities devote to policing and what the effects are. We invite folks to participate in a project to collect data about university/police relationships with the goal of kicking cops off campuses and abolishing policing.
