Int'l Group Honors B.C.P.D.

An international campus police association has honored the Boston College Police Department for its goodwill gesture to a South African university.

The BCPD sponsored the University of Zululand campus police for membership in the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators. The group presented a certificate of recognition to Boston College for "fostering international growth."

The IACLEA has been trying to increase outreach to the Third World, said BCPD Chief Robert Morse, and the University of Zululand represented a promising candidate.

"It's refreshing to see a member from that part of the world come into our organization, and to try to help them along," said Morse. "It broadens our knowledge of other universities."
