Students met with members of Brookline, Boston, and Boston University police departments in a town hall meeting held in the George Sherman Union’s Metcalf Ballroom. The meeting discussed a wide range of topics, from racial profiling, to the efficacy of BU Emergency Alert, to the resources available to the victims of the four robberies.
Brookline Police Chief Daniel O’Leary, BUPD Chief Thomas Robbins, Boston Police Sgt. Michael C. O’Hara, and BU vice president of administrative services Peter Fiedler answered student questions for an hour. The meeting was moderated by Dean of Students Kenn Elmore, who barred all outside media and use of video.
