MARIETTA, Ga. -- Life University in Atlanta is eliminating its campus police department and switching to private security.
WAGA-TV reports that the private security won't be armed or have arrest powers.
Executive Vice President and Provost Brian McAulay said a campus police force is not necessary, given the size of the school. He said the university can get quick response from the Marietta police and Cobb County law enforcement if there is a problem. Some students say they are concerned about whether security will be as good as in the past.
The university has 2,500 students, with about 400 living on campus. The change eliminates 10 full-time positions and four part-time positions.
