UNCG Police have always helped in managing traffic and with any other related needs during move-in. But this is the first year UNCG Police Command Staff and officers in the department have helped students with their move-in, from curb to room.
Paul Lester, UNCG Chief of Police, was one of those helping.
Chief Lester said that they had observed other campus entities do this, and wanted to step up their involvement this year.
It’s a way to reach out to the students and their families, Lester explained. They see that UNCG Police are approachable and ready to be of service. And being a bigger part of Move-in was great.
“This is one more way we can help.”
