Email regarding demonstration
July 26, 2015
To: UC Students, Faculty and Staff
From: C. Jason Goodrich, Director of Public Safety, Chief of Police
We want to make you aware that a demonstration is currently scheduled to take place today on the university's campus outside the Public Safety office at 51 W. Corry Boulevard. The demonstration, tentatively scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m., is related to the officer-involved shooting that occurred on July 19.
Participants plan to gather on Corry Boulevard, travel south on Jefferson Avenue to Vine Street and away from campus. UC Police are working closely with Cincinnati Police to provide a safe environment in which participants can gather peacefully.
The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority. The university is respectful of all thoughts and opinions and has been working diligently to share all information allowable by law. I want to reassure you that we are working very closely with the Cincinnati Police Department to increase its police patrols in the neighborhoods surrounding our Uptown campuses. NightRide service will continue to operate as usual (call 556-Ride) and our Safety Ambassadors and Campus Watch patrols will continue their work both on and off campus. Additionally, UC Police will continue to provide safe ride service during non-NightRide hours. For information about NightRide visit www.uc.edu/publicsafety.
