UC ingot   University of Cincinnati President Santa J. Ono decided, in consultation with UC Police Chief Jason Goodrich and members of the university’s executive leadership, to make the following policy changes in UC police operations effective July 20.

These changes have been enacted until further notice following the July 19 officer-involved shooting that led to the death of Samuel DuBose:

  • UC Police will focus its patrols within campus boundaries. UC has multiple campus locations, so university police vehicles will still be seen traveling between locations. The City of Cincinnati Police Department has agreed to increase its patrols outside the boundaries of campus in the interim.

  •  UC Police will conduct traffic stops only within the boundaries of UC’s campuses.

In addition, the university and UC Police will review its MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the City of Cincinnati Police Department.
