You drive like a dumb ass on 3rd St. you should get pulled over by ISU if they see it, and deem it necessary to pull you over and find out why you're driving so stupid. There's no such thing as campus only driving laws.

The ISU Police Dept should have more power than the state PD, they should be givin the sam authority of the Game Wardens.

"game wardens" as you call it, have no "super extra high power" as you simpletons think. Conservation officers have no extra powers over any other officer in the state of Indiana (or IL, or KY, or TN well you get the picture).

Actually they do, sort of. Indiana DNR Conservation Officers have statewide powers of arrest like other police officers, but they also have administrative authority over a ton of DNR rules/regulations/laws. I'm not sure I'd term that "super extra high power", but their authority certainly covers more. And that extra authority can be very useful if you get creative. ;)

Same goes for Excise Police Officers. They have statewide powers of arrest AND administrative authority relative to rules/regs/laws of the Alcohol & Tobacco Commission.

In addition to their powers of arrest, city police officers (at least in TH) can enforce city ordinances (but not county ordinances). Sheriff's deputies (at least in Vigo) can enforce county ordinances (but not city ordinances).

Clear as mud, right?:)

<quoted text>The ISU Security officers are a bunch of jokes who could not make the THPD or VCSD. The chief, Bill Mercier is a loser who was fired from Washington State University for having the worse riot in school history. Asst Chief Joe "Ladies Man" Newport quit the THPD as Chief of police knowing his mayor JIM "Barney FIFE" JENKINS was going to get beat by Judy Anderson.They are nothing but babysitters who are waaaaay to highly paid. You could hire a Pinkerton guard or security company to do the job as well as these wanna be idiots. If something really does go wrong they always call for the THPD to back them up,the response time for THPD to get to the scene on campus is less than 3 minutes when it takes the ISU idiots at least 6 minutes to jump in there golf cart or run from the dorm they are sleeping in. What a waste of money!!!! Bill Mercier & Kyle Nave were good cops together...TWEETEE BIRDS
Kile Nave lives in louisville kentucky now with a guy name Will Smith.

You're spot on. Good job. Probably one of the most cogent posts in this entire thread.

So if 3rd St. is the problem then the last time I checked there was
a University Campus on the East side of 3rd St. along with about 10,000 students. Wouldn't that make 3rd St. a campus roadway?
Yep

Not to mention university housing at 3rd and Farrington, the baseball complex at 1st and locust, the field campus in Brazil, the property on US 41 north near Hasselburger, the property on Robinson Road, all the houses they now own to the north of campus in the avenues, and on and on.

ISU could save several hundred thousand dollars by hiring a top-notch security company to replace the door-shakers they have now.

Call them rental cops, they like that.

Truth is, there perception of there penis length is so small they feel the need to abuse their power. Which means pulling anyone, anywhere over for any reason they can. I got a seatbelt ticket from one. Thanks for making sure I'm wearing my seatbelt instead of protecting the hundreds of women on campus that could be brutally raped at any moment. ;)

I bet his girl appreciates you wasting our hard earned tax dollars: http://www.allvoices.com/s/event-1319810/aHR0...

ISU has the largest single concentration of population inside the smallest area of any part of the city with the fewest Police officers per resident. They pull people over for a power trip. They are trying to be like a real police officer. Yes they have the right, but shouldnt they be protecting the students that parents and taxpayers are paying them to protect? A seatbelt violation on third st? WTF? Its typical of all police prescense, gone nuts.

Ok f*#ktards, let me clear this up once and for all. As previously stated, ISU PD are regular Police officers that can (and obviously do) enforce laws anywhere in Indiana. Secondly, 3rd St is where the nearest food, gas, soda/coffee, is for them, so it's really not that hard to understand why you might see them on 3rd st. Lastly, ISU now owns a TON of property on the north side of Terre Haute, around campus, on 1st St, etc. which they are tasked with protecting. GET THE F*#K OVER IT! Stupid thread over
