True Crime from the USA
A series of True Crime on Campus posts has highlighted some of the strange goings on around the University of Nottingham that our Security Team have to deal with. Nottingham is far from unique though and similar reports are regularly carried in the Chronicle. Some examples of these, published earlier this year, follow:
1:17 p.m., September 13
Suspicious person: Complaint of a male subject, 30′s-40′s, wearing a suit jacket and holding a Bible while yelling at people between Luther Bonney and Payson Smith Halls. Officer responded and is familiar with the subject. Advised to lower his voice.
5:19 p.m., September 16
Welfare check. Report of a lady sitting in Bailey Hall who asked whether it was “safe to sit here.” Officer responded and spoke with the lady who is waiting for daughter to get out of class. All set.
12:08 p.m., September 21
Disturbance. The preacher is on campus yelling and interrupting students studying outside Luther Bonney Hall. Officer responded and issued a trespass notice for the Portland campus. The preacher will have to speak with the Student Life office.
Suspicious person. Male subject has been sleeping in the middle stairwell of Payson Smith Hall for several hours. Officer responded and spoke with the subject who has a six hour wait between classes. Advised to wait in the 1st floor common area.

Interesting. But not as good as ours.
