A few questions about University "police"

Is this a nationwide "thing"?

Are they recruited by universities and then trained by local police?

Are they full-fledged local police who are hired by universities?

Are policies universal or at the whims of each collegiate board (or whomever hires them)?

If they are truly UNIVERSITY police, aren't they only police ON CAMPUS?

Thinking back to the Skip Gates incident, was that cop a university cop? Or was he sent on campus as a result of 911?

After the Samuel Du Pose episode, I am starting to see a Zimmerman-esque tinge..

I don;t even think we had university police way back when I went to college...at least I never saw one or knew they existed..
