Sept. 2-PAC report, part 2: regular meeting

STATE OF THE PRECINCT:  Sgt. David Hansen reported that students are just coming back to the U, and have more free time early in the year.  The Precinct and UMPD are running saturation details over the weekends, especially in Dinkytown and Stadium Village.  Patrols are watching for people they spot walking down the street focused on their phones with no idea of who  is around them; officers are trying to raise awareness, teach some street smarts. Officers are spending lots of time on robbery; detached garages are targets. Crime statistics for July are here   which is the most recent compilation available online. QUESTION:  How do you divide the area up with UMPD?  There is a division of labor:  the U of MN PD is more hands on, on the campus.  MPD meets with the University Off Camus Living Dept., and works directly with students who live off campus, but there is a lot of overlap and shared responsibility between the two independent forces.
