New wheels will help keep ASU safe

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There are some new wheels on campus as Albany State University's police force finds new ways to keep students and staff safe.

The force bought two new all terrain vehicles with the help of a state grant. On Wednesday, officers were trained on how to use them properly and safely.

Assistant Chief John Fields says the ATV's give them another layer of safety. They'll now be able to secure parts of campus that weren't easily accessible before.

"We've been having complaints of people coming through our campus on three and four-wheelers tearing up the grass so we just want them to know that we have the capability to follow you and maybe even arrest you," said Fields.

Fields says students need to be on best behavior also. Officers will use the rides to make sure they aren't up to any mischief on campus.
