Abstract

This article examines the scope of lawful campus police jurisdiction and the power of campus police officers. Police jurisdiction has become a particularly thorny, though increasingly relevant, issue as colleges and universities continue to experience both intense population and physical growth culminating in a large amount of distance learning and commuting students, challenging the historical concept of an insular campus. As such, very important constitutional, procedural, and other legal questions are raised. For example, can a campus police officer pull over and arrest an individual off campus for a DUI? What happens when the school is a private religious university?
