Court rules NC college can't have cops
Can't have officers with the power to arrest and enforce state law because the school is a religious institution
Deseret Morning News
RALEIGH, NC — A prestigious university in North Carolina cannot have police officers with the power to arrest suspects and enforce state law because the school is a religious institution, the state Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.
A three-judge panel agreed that the state Attorney General's Office shouldn't have commissioned Davidson College officers as law enforcement with powers similar to city police or county sheriffs.
