Dear Campus Police,

Times are tough for you. I get it. I’ve been there. I used to be a campus police officer and have been called a ‘glorified mall cop,’ ‘rent-a-cop,’ ‘security,’ and ‘not the real police.’ Tensions between students, community members, and the police are at an all-time high. Quite frankly, it can get old.

I want to send some hope your way.

Out there on your very own campus, there is a group of people who are working together to make your job and your life much easier. They want to lower your stress! They have looked at the data time and time again. Done focus groups, student surveys, community surveys, and hours of analysis.

Motivational Interviewing for Campus Police - Book Foreword

Any law enforcement officer who reads this book on “Motivational Interviewing” will find him/herself in a win-win situation.  The book is a quick read and will motivate the reader to peruse the material quickly in order to get to the end where there are examples to assist in the implementation of “Motivational Interviewing” (MI). Although the book is geared towards campus police officers the material and concept are beneficial to all law enforcement. If one considers the situation now involving law enforcement personnel and the public, an officer would be truly missing a chance to not only defuse a potential physical situation but also develop new and improved lines of communication with the public (albeit one at a time!) An officer can never have too many “sources of information” on the street and this book will help the officer in developing and maintaining those contacts. The public can/will develop an enhanced and positive image of law...
