'U' moves to establish police force

by Christine Kloostra
Daily Staff Reporter
The University took the first step
in the gradual development of a
campus police force two weeks ago
by posting notices that it is hiring
police officers.
The posting was the second of a
12-step process that will bring six to
10 deputized police officers to the
University within a month, said Sgt.
Vern Baisden, University crime pre-
vention supervisor.
Originally, University officials
estimated that only two or three offi-
cers would be added this year, but
Baisden said earlier estimates have
since been broadened and plans are
(now) being put in order."
The Department of Safety and
Security had received no additional
budget for the hiring process as it
began, but William Krumm, director
of University business operations,
said that funding would be made
available as it was needed.
"I have indicated to them (Safety

and Security) on what level they can
proceed," he said, adding that the
money "will come from a variety of
sources," that had not yet been de-
The job was listed in the Univer-
sity Record, area newspapers, and at
various job posting locations around
the University, in an attempt to at-
tract a large number of candidates,
Baisden said.
He said the University's Depart-
ment of Safety and Security is
"hoping there will be a large quan-
tity," so they can be more selective
in choosing qualified applicants.
The University accepted applica-
tions only from individuals who
have already completed police
academy training.
Applications and resumes were
reviewed, and qualified applicants
were interviewed by a panel com-
prised of administrators in the de-
partment. These applicants will be

required to go through drug and psy-
chological testing.
Following the testing, a com-
plete background investigation of the
remaining candidates will be made
and their references will be checked.
The list of candidates will be sub-
mitted to the Office of Affirmative
Action for approval, and the Univer-
sity will make its job offers.
Candidates who accept the offer
will receive employee orientation --
special training that will "sensitize"
them to the University's "unique
When orientation is completed,
the officers will be under a six
month probationary period, during
which time their performance will be
observed by supervisors to determine
if they are suitable for the job.
Baisden said plans for future hir-
ing will be made after the first phase
is completed. Current plans call for a
24-member force.
Plans for overseeing the force are

still being determined. Administra-
tively, security officers are currently
under the immediate control of the
Department of Public Safety, which
reports to Krumm, then the Vice
President and Chief Financial Offi-
cer, Farris Womack.
Administrative supervision will
remain the same, but an overseeing
committee will be established to deal
with matters such as complaints
from students and staff. Harrison said
the committee will likely be made
up of two students, two staff mem-
bers, and two faculty members.
However, the task force recom-
mended the 11-year-old Campus
Safety Committee serve as the advi-
sory committee. The report recom-
mends the committee "should con-
tinue to function in an advisory ca-
pacity on policy matters, on plans
for the future, and as a place where
faculty, staff and students can bring
safety concerns."

force are not fully developed, it is known some security officers will carry

Across the nation, small towns eye big universities' budgets

by Michael Sullivan
Daily Staff Reporter
The homes of the best and worst
football teams in the Big Ten -Ann
Arbor, Michigan and Evanston, Illi-
nois - have discovered they have
something in common. Both cities

face budget crises, and both have
eyed hungrily the riches of their Big
Ten universities.
Both cases result from a common
malady of town-gown relationships:
universities don't pay property taxes.
Consequently, small cities with




large universities often feel overbur-
In Ann Arbor, the University's
decision last month to create its own
police force and parking violations
bureau lifted a "longstanding prob-
lem" to a new level, said Ann Arbor
Council member Jerry Schleicher
(R-Fourth Ward).
The loss of the University's
$496,710 annual contribution for
police services and parking revenues
of about $600,000 opened a $1.1
million hole in the city budget. At a
meeting two weeks ago, the council
passed a resolution forming an
eleven-member Citizens Alternative
Fee Committee "to investigate vari-
ous fees and taxes that could be ap-
plied to the University of Michigan
facilities and services."
Possible fees include taxes on
dorm rents, athletic tickets, and tu-

ition. But parties on both sides of
the conflict believe these taxes may'
be illegal under state law.
"Most of the things they are sug-
gesting are outside state law," said
Executive Director of University Re-
lations Walter Harrison.
"The state would have to pass
some kind of enabling legislation,"
said Council member Ann Marie
Coleman (D-First Ward), echoing
Harrison's concerns. "And that's not
very likely."
The city of Evanston is at least a
step ahead of Ann Arbor in its effort
to extract revenue from a reluctant
University. Since 1982, tickets to
Northwestern athletic events have
carried an eleven percent city tax that
nets $125,000 a year, said Chuck
Loebbaka, Northwestern's Manager
of Media Relations.
Northwestern prints the price of
each ticket and the city tax on each
ticket, said Krista Dempsey, an em-
ployee at the Northwestern Athletic
Ticket Office. This year's tickets
read: "Ticket Price - $13.51,
Evanston City Tax - $1.49, Total
- $15.00."

Most buyers dart t comment on
the tax, Dempscy said, but "season
iicket holders are aware of how much
we pay the city, and they sometimes
say 'Wow, I can't believe the city
takes that much."'
On September 10, the Evanston
Council of Alderpersons will vote
on another controversial measure de-
signed to increase Northwestern's
contribution to the city budget, a
one-half percent tax on tuition.
With a tight budget year ap-
proaching, Evanston tried to negoti-
ate a "payment in lieu of taxes" from
Northwestern, but was rebuffed, said
a spokesperson for the Evanston
City Clerk's Office.
In response, group of citizens,
the Evanston Alliance for Taxation
(EAT) pressed for additional taxes on
Led by Ald. Jack Korshak, the
Council of Aldermen has proposed a
tuition tax - paid by students, not
Northwestern - that will amount to
$65 per student per term. Korshak
estimated the tuition tax would raise
$600,000 a year for the city.
As in Ann Arbor, the Evanston
tax will undergo legal scrutiny be-
fore any money is raised.
"If the city does adopt a tax," said
Loebbaka, "we will take it to court
to test its legality. Obviously, we
think it will not be held up.
"Of course, we'll have to pay

God knows what in legal fees," Kor-
shak said, but remained hopeful. "I
think we'll win."
Yet, just the prospect of a tax has
raised tensions between Northwes-
ern and Evanston. Korshak call
Northwestern President Arnold We-
ber "an authentic son-of-a-bitch" and
said he had received many angry
letters from students' parents. One of
them wrote: "I will be.sure to tell
my son if he needs a new pair of
jeans not to buy them in Evanston!"'
Korshak said students shouldnt
feel victimized, but rather should act
as mediators and some students sees
to be listening.
"The city citizens' attitude is "w6
don't necessarily want to tax Stu-
dents, but the University has to' be
responsible for something,"' said
Northwestern student Elissa Satd
"As a Northwestern student, I'd be
more outraged by a huge, unex
plained tuition increase than
Northwestern administrators s
it already contributes to the city in
other ways.
"The city receives about $1 mi-
lion from different taxes on the Un-
versity," said Loebbaka, includin'
the athletic tax, utility taxes and
parking taxes.
But Loebbaka said the solutionis
not more taxes.-
"Northwestern believes economi
development is the answer to
city's budget problem," he saf E
adding that Northwestern has cod-;
tributed $20 million to the creatiQe
of a research park in Evanston thaI
should spur such development. :
