Arming the Campus Police

Our AFT 2121 Executive Board and our rank-and-file General Membership have voted to stand with our Associated Students and CCSF Solidarity Committee student leaders in opposing the arming of CCSF campus police. Our first concern is the safety of our students. We don’t believe that arming our campus police is the way forward.

There is a Resolution tomorrow at the Academic Senate that seeks to do a survey of the faculty on the arming of the police on campus. This survey is then supposed to be done in a few weeks and inform the decision of the Academic Senate members of the PGC.

Really? This is a terrible precedent for decision-making at the Academic Senate. Why this issue for a survey? Why not other issues? Should it be done for all issues? Our understanding of the process is that elected members of the AS Council are supposed to decide on how to vote based on their judgment, not decide based on unscientific surveys.

How would the survey be designed? Surveys are supposed to be designed to ensure a lack of bias. There is no information on what the survey would say. Who will respond and how would we know it representative?

We believe that the Resolution unanimously passed by our Academic Senate in December 2014 against arming the campus police should stand.

You can help by coming out tomorrow Wednesday May 3rd to the Academic Senate meeting at 2:30pm at Mission Campus in Room 109 to urge our Academic Senate to vote against this Resolution and maintain their position against arming the campus police.
