Vanderburgh County sheriff’s deputies are now patrolling USI full-time.
The sheriff’s office says 5 deputies have been chosen to serve on the USI Patrol Unit, after the university and the county agreed on a $450,000 deal last year.
USI Vice President Steve Bridges told reporters the deputies will provide an “extra layer” of security on the campus…
"This is an enhancement for USI campus safety, not a replacement. Our public safety officers are on campus and they're here to serve with EMT needs and parking enforcement."
