Many colleges and universities have memorandums of understanding (MOU) in place with local law enforcement.. These MOU’s can cover cover a variety of areas.
Our conversations with campus administrators, campus police, and law enforcement underscore the need for additional efforts in this area. In light of these talks, it is clear that appropriate tools and strategies are lacking. Authorities need to apply proper procedures to accommodate the unique dynamics of sexual assault on campus. Additionally, sexual assault survivors require a new approach that is more commiserate with their needs.
The task force is providing this sample MOU with that in mind.
