ODU gets help patrolling campus

Officials at Old Dominion University are enlisting the Norfolk Sheriff's Department to help patrol the campus after a recent string of crimes.

President John Broderick said in a letter to the university community that campus police also will increase patrols. He also has asked ODU's police chief to work with Norfolk’s police chief to boost law-enforcement presence in the area surrounding the campus.

Broderick also noted in Wednesday’s letter that a joint police facility, approved by the Norfolk City Council in August, is under way. It would serve as the city’s Third Precinct and the university’s police headquarters.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that several robberies and an assault have been reported since the beginning of the school year.
