More ECU Officers Will Be Present In Greenville

Tuesday night, the Greenville city council approved an agreement to allow ECU police jurisdiction in parts of the city, not just on campus. The joint law enforcement presence hopes to combat the recent crime wave that has plagued the city and also hopes to add more police to neighborhoods with students. The expanded coverage area will only cover misdemeanors and felonies. The ECU Board of Trustees has to approve the measure before it can take effect.
