Duke graduate student Kevin Jones and members of the Duke University Police Department, share helpful tips on how members of the Duke community can make sure to stay safe on and around campus, as well as while hanging out with friends.
In May 2010, three members of the Duke University Police Department rode more than 250 miles from Virginia to Washington, D.C. as part of the Law Enforcement United Road to Hope. In honor of former Duke Police officer Charles J. Callemyn, who died in 2007, and other fallen officers, Duke sergeants Mark Faust and David Johnson and Lt. Rekayi Isley formed "Team Duke" and were among more than a thousand riders from across the country who came together for the ride. The Duke officers raised more than $6,500 for charity as part of the ride.
Duke Police are able to patrol campus in a unique way by hoping on Segways - two-wheeled vehicles. In addition to being emission-free, officers say it helps them meet and greet members of the Duke community.
