Heightened law enforcement draws concerns from U.Va. students

Hundreds of state troopers are being housed at the University as a safety measure for upcoming weekend
By Maggie Servais | 08/10/2018

Hundreds of state law enforcement personnel have been sent to the Charlottesville area in anticipation of the anniversary of the white nationalist rallies in the city last year. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Interim City Manager Mike Murphy declared state and local emergencies Wednesday, expanding security measures in the region.

In addition to road closures, and restricted access to the Downtown Mall and the Lawn, some law enforcement personnel are being housed in the Lambeth Field Residence area on Grounds.

The heightened police presence on and around Grounds has been a cause for alarm among some students, particularly within minority communities.
