The University's Board of Re-
ents' approval in June to imple-
.4rent a campus police force has added
a new dimension to a local "hotline"
for complaints of police harassment
and brutality.
Steve Pearlman, president of the
University chapter of the American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said
the Holton Police Complaint Clinic
(998-7975) is expanding its services
beyond responding to calls about
city police.
* The clinic, named for a former
University student, responds to
complaints lodged against University
officials - even resident advisors -
for physical or verbal abuse, Pearl-
man said.
"I would have a hard time limit-
ing the scope of the clinic," he said.
"We'd like to answer any phone calls
of students who feel they were
treated unfairly."
Though ACLU does not take an
official stance on the University's
move to deputize its security offi-
cers, Pearlman explained the organi-
zation's concern for students' protec-
tion.
"The police sometimes think
they can treat students as if they're
not people," he continued. "We have
to be especially careful and watch
hen they're breaking up rallies or
I rotests (to see) if they're really in-
fringing on First Amendment rights
and using rules as a way of harassing
students."
Some students have objected to
the deputization of the campus secu-
rity force for fear it will squelch stu-
dents' rights to assembly and free
speech.

'U' fleet to patrol
with city officers

by Josephine Ballenger
Daily Crime Reporter
Beginning Monday, Ann Arbor
police won't be the only law en:=
forcement officials patrolling in city
police cars.
These eight are the first of
approximately 24 officers to be
trained for the campus police force in
the next three years, following the
University's Board of Regents' deci-
sion in June to implement such a
force.
The ride-along is part of the for-
mal training program of University's
Department of Public Safety and
Security (DPSS). The program,
which began Oct. 1, is being coordi-
nated with the Ann Arbor Police
Department.
This is the first group of approx-
imately 24 officers to be trained for
the campus police force in the next
three years, following the
University's Board of Regents' deci-
sion in June to implement such a

force.
Ann Arbor Deputy Chief Don
Johnson said the University officers
will go wherever the city patrol car
is called, focusing on the campus.
Most of the trainees have worked
as University security officers, said
William Krumm, University associ-
ate vice president for business opera-
tions.
Johnson said the trainees will
learn from the patrol because once
they are University police officers,
they will have responsibilities they
did not have as security officers,
such as issuing citations and testify
ing in court.
Krumm estimated the patrol stage
of the training will take at least a
month. DPSS aims to put the new
force into effect by the end of the
year, reported Sgt. Vern Baisden.
Baisden described DPSS's train-
ing program as "one of the most ex
tensive that could ever be devel-'
oped."

"Any group that's watchdogging
is good. The hotline is a reactive
method, but I prefer a pro-active
method of getting rid of deputiza-
tion," said Corey Dolgon, chair of
Michigan Student Assembly's Stu-
dent Rights Commission. The
commission has repeatedly attacked
the University's implementation of a
campus police force.
Sgt. Vern Baisden, of Department
of Public Safety and Security
(DPSS), pointed out that students
have always been able to file com-
plaints, and that there are a
"multitude of mechanisms or av-
enues that people can follow if they
have a concern or complaint about
the actions of any member of this
department."
For cases the ACLU cannot han-
dle, the service refers callers to
groups such as Sexual Assault Pre-
vention and Awareness Center or,
'U' Peer Counseling.

New photo IDs to become the university norm

by Jay Garcia
Daily Staff Reporter
University juniors and seniors
will not be forced to switch their old
photo-less IDs for newer photo IDs
in order to go through CRISP regis-
tration later this month.
The November/December issue of
LSA Checkpoint Newsletter incor-
rectly reported that the new Univer-
sity ID cards would be required for
CRISPing.
"No one would be prevented
from registering if they have an ID
card, old or with picture," said Dou-
glas Wooley, associate registrar for
the University.
The consensus is that most Uni-
versity undergraduates already have
photo IDs and those that don't are
encouraged to get one, he added.

Wooley has sent letters to the
registrars of all the University's
schools asking them to encourage
students who own old IDs to make
the change. No seniors will be re-
quired to make the switch, however.
The decision to encourage the ID
change came about, in part, as a re-
sult of problems students had en-
countered with the old ones. Some
students complained that they had
trouble using the old cards as ID in
several retail stores, said Wooley.
One student was glad to be able
to make the change to a photo ID.
"The new ID is a lot better and more
durable. I just haven't had time (to
switch it)," said LSA sophomore
Stefanie Issen.
News that the old IDs can still be
used for CRISP should please those

juniors and seniors who had caught
wind of the rumor saying the oppo-
site. People with the old ID are "not
going to be turned away at the door,"
Adelman reiterated.
All incoming students are now
given the new photo IDs at orienta-

tion. This year the IDs also serve as
meal cards whereas the two card
were separate in the past.
"This is going to become an all
University ID card," said Lynn
Adelman, administrative associate at
the CRISP offices in Angell Hall.

'!Engler

confirms

marriage plans

DETROIT (AP) - Governor-
elect John Engler confirmed Wednes-
day that he is getting married next
*onth.
"We're very happy," the groom-
to-be said, describing Michigan's fu-
ture first lady as "an absolutely won-
derful person."
Engler, whose slim gubernatorial
victory over Gov. James Blanchard
was confirmed Wednesday, was in-
troduced to Michelle De Munbrun

earlier this year by Colleen Pero of
Engler's staff. They became engaged
in August.
Engler said the couple kept their
engagement hushed to avoid distract-
ing his campaign, and also because
"nobody asked."
The wedding is planned for De-
cember 8 in San Antonio, Texas, the
bride's hometown, the Detroit Free
Press reported in yesterday's
editions.
