Jon Barnwell wants to keep the campus community informed about security programs, so the superintendent of the Tulane University Police Department has launched a monthly email newsletter, Wave Patrol.

The inaugural issue went out on Monday (Aug. 20). Printed copies of the issue will be placed in all residence hall rooms for returning students. Anyone who wants to receive the newsletter via email, in addition to regular email crime alerts, can sign up here.

Barnwell, who joined Tulane in January, talks in the first issue about an expanded patrol perimeter into neighborhoods surrounding the uptown campus. Officers patrol between South Carrollton Avenue, St. Charles Avenue, Jefferson Avenue and Fontainebleau Drive.  For a map of the patrol area, as well a link to the current Wave Patrol issue, check online

“Our increased number of officers, plus the aggressive education and outreach we have done with our students and plan to do when they return in the fall, makes us confident we are employing best practices to protect our Tulane family,” Barnwell says in the publication.
