According to a spokesperson for the Tempe Police Department, ASU is now being patrolled by both the City of Tempe Police and the ASU Police.
Following the second homicide at ASU in five months as of November 2010, Tempe and ASU police have increased presence in and around the campus, both marked cars and plain clothes.
The ASU Police Department held two safety forums in late October 2010. Crime prevention officers and staff from the Tempe Police Department also attended. A third educational forum about personal safety is being planned, as well as an Internet event for out-of-state parents concerned about campus safety.
