Campus police plan faces opposition from officials

After Panteion University’s senate rejected the idea, four other major Greek universities have agreed to accept having campus police forces aimed at thwarting violence after assaults on officials and drug dealing near their grounds – and then objections were immediately raised, reports The National Herald.
