UD police to crack down on underage drinking this weekend


The University of Dayton on Friday sent an email to students warning them there will be an “increased staff and police presence” in student neighborhoods on Saturday to better ensure safety.

The heightened police presence is in response to recently increased instances of “high-risk drinking, lack of civility with university staff, police officers and each other, damage to property, disorderly conduct and personal injury,” according to the email obtained by this news organization.

Police will be dispersing large crowds, citing underage drinking and enforcing occupancy limits, according to the email, which was signed by vice president for student development William Fischer and UD police chief Rodney Chatman.

“We ask for your cooperation as we work to provide a safe environment for all community members,” officials said in the email.

The email also asked concerned students to contact the department of public safety at 937-229-2121.

The email to students comes just two weeks after 23 UD students were arrested for underage drinking in a sting by the Ohio Division of Liquor Control.
