VC Police Department Reacts To Texas Tech ShootingPosted: Updated:
Last night a Texas Tech University campus police officer was shot and killed on by a student.
Today Victoria College Campus Police Chief Appelt says what happened is a tragedy and a possibility officers face every day. However, the likeliness of this event happening on Victoria College's campus is unlikely as the student do not live on campus
"Here at Victoria College, we have a lot less crime than what you'd see at some of the bigger university's," Chief Appelt said. "Of course you have a smaller population, we have no housing, that helps tremendously. The student's come on campus, they do their studies and then they leave."
Chief Appelt says that the Victoria College Police Department has cameras throughout the campus in order to monitor what individuals are bringing into the school
