LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Talks about safety and concerns on campuses were had Wednesday morning over a cup of coffee and a couple of donuts.
Western Technical College hosted a 'Cops and Donuts' event Wednesday to improve communication between local officers and students. Western security, UW-La Crosse Police, and La Crosse Police were available to hear about people's concerns and questions
Security leaders at Western say improving those relationships can help a lot during a potential crisis.
"We're a lot more likely to have people sharing with us things that are happening, things that are concerns to them, and the kinds of problems they're facing. So seeing us as active partners in their learning community is a really important aspect of what we do,” said WTC Security Manager Raj Ramnarace.
This was Western Technical College's third annual 'Cops and Donuts' event.
