When asked what the top recommendations would be, he replied more training, oversight, safety improvements to the physical space on campus and engagement with the campus community.
Student testimony included Kaitlyn Day who said she is upset with the report and doesn’t agree with a lot of the recommendations. She said PSU officers should be disarmed and community based solutions should be used instead. She said Margolis Healy “is made up of former law enforcement and they were always going to give us law enforcement” solutions.
The board of trustees did not vote on the recommendations today, but discussed next steps. It will form a committee to assess impacts of the recommendations and will help the board prioritize. The committee will get back to the board in May and the board will consider the recommendations at its June meeting.
