Public Hearing held 3/21

This bill prohibits police officers commissioned by public university from carrying firearms as police officers outside of police headquarters if public university is located in city with population exceeding 150,000.
Forces Oregon public university police officers to carry out duties unarmed. So if they are a private citizen they can be armed on campus for self defense, but if acting as a campus police officer they cannot be armed for defense of students.
Leaves no room for universities to decide for themselves whether to use armed campus police officers. Mandates that they be unarmed in Portland, Salem and Eugene, which is where most of the offenses occur.
