CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - According to former UC police chief Gene Ferrerra, back in 2003, there were 6000 students that lived within a mile of campus.
Reports showed that UC had experienced a spike in robberies and CPD didn't have any more resources to give to the problem. That's how the agreement was reached for UC to patrol Cincinnati streets.
That agreement lead to 6 years of crime ticking down around the University, stated Ferrerra.
In a statement, UC president Santa Ono said in part, "I have received many requests for their return to service. Resumption of our UC patrols will be a reassurance to many members of our community, including parents, as we prepare for another academic year to begin."
