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.

De-escalation Training 

De-escalation is a targeted intervention for use with individuals at risk for aggression. De-escalation training educates us on the use of calm language, along with other communication techniques to diffuse, re-direct or de-escalate a conflict situation at its earliest stage.

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.
