DID YOU KNOW?
Yale University employed two New Haven Police Officers on a rotating basis. The duty was enjoyed by several officers in the department. The student body and the university reacted well to having two of these officers on their campus. Eventually Yale wanted to keep the same two officers all of the time. The city of New Haven frowned on this request and insisted the duty would rotate with different officers. As a result, Yale broke off the city contract and hired the two officers on a permanent basis. These two officers, 1893, formed the first campus police department.
