Community Oriented Policing (COP)

University of Toledo Police Department (UTPD) officers are active in Community Oriented Policing (COP), a philosophy of policing promoting partnerships between law enforcement and the community served. Officers are assigned to specific areas of responsibility such as Parks Tower residence hall or the Student Recreation Center. Officers spend time becoming familiar with the students and staff and the unique challenges found in those respective areas. Relationships are developed and the officer is viewed as a resource and educator on safe habits and practices. Officers attend meetings with students and staff and help develop solutions to problems. Programming such as theft prevention methods, alcohol/drug awareness and sexual assault prevention are among some of the programs provided through community policing.

Self Defense & Personal Safety

The UTPD offers a training course in basic self-defense. The training examines fundamental principles of awareness and avoidance. The course coverage includes: How to avoid potentially dangerous situations; how to handle verbal confrontation; tips to be mindful of to prevent a physical encounter; and finally, a demonstration of actual techniques that may be used to defend oneself against an attacker.

Healthy Boundaries

The Healthy Boundaries program provides a safe place to talk about relationships and to learn and practice healthy relationship skills. Participants learn that healthy relationships are based on equality and mutual respect. In a healthy relationship, each person’s can experience personal growth and the intimacy of healthy connectedness. The power in a healthy relationship is balanced. Healthy relationships happen when we actively respect each other’s rights. Participants realize that while conflict is inevitable in relationships, fear, threats and violence are not. Healthy relationships have numerous benefits, including better morale, attendance and grades. CLICK HERE for the Relationship Equality Wheel.
