Johns Hopkins’ efforts to secure a private police force were strongly opposed by TRU, which joined Students Against Private Police and Women Against Private Police in protest and legal actions to stop the implementation of this armed campus force. At present, TRU remains committed to ensuring maximum accountability to address graduate workers’ continuing concerns about the force: namely, that it should not amplify existing patterns of discrimination, pose a threat to the safety of workers of color, or adversely impact the wider Baltimore community of which we are a part.
