Several Vandalism Reports at University of Kansas

Associated Press - July 31, 2013 9:37 am

Researchers at the University of Kansas are experimenting with using a blue light to help law enforcement officers nab red-light runners. Here's how the system works: Blue lights come on when traffic signals turns red, providing a visual clue to officers. The university says the blue light is visible from 360 degrees. That way even if officers can't directly see the traffic signal change, they can still know that a motorist ran a red light. Blue confirmation light systems are being installed at two intersections in Lawrence and two in Overland Park. Researchers from the university's School of Engineering will monitor the system's effectiveness during the next six months. Funding for the project comes from the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Mid-America Transportation Center.

University of Kansas police are investigating several acts of vandalism at campus buildings this month.

The vandalism began July 12 when someone caused $5,000 damage in a bathroom at Wescoe Hall and benches on the building’s ground floor.

Damage was later reported at Blake Hall, Fraser Hall, Malott Hall and Stauffer-Flint Hall. The total damage was estimated at $9,000.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports all the buildings were unlocked because people were working inside. It’s not clear if all the vandalism incidents are related.

Da where were the campus police??? Really not related? LOL and there were people in the buildings working and they did not hear the bathroom being destroyed? Seems KU has big problems and vandalism is not one of them.
