Bristol Community College Cops Will Carry Guns
As we mentioned a few weeks ago, BCC was considering a proposal to arm it’s officers at the Fall River and downtown New Bedford campuses. Now, the college’s board of trustees have voted to approve a policy that will allow the campus police force to carry firearms.
According to BCC, the officers will undergo extensive training and evaluations before begin given the guns. It’s likely that campus police won’t be carrying firearms until late next spring.
