Harvard University Campus Police Indicate Negligent Training

Is this one more example of negligent training of the Harvard University campus police? By statute their jurisdiction ends at the property line of the university. HUPD misguidedly believes they have exclusive jurisdiction on campus and over students. But state law does not agree. Students obey authority and believe their campus badge-wearing-gun-toting officers. 

Cambridge, MA city police are reluctant to keep the lines strictly drawn and permit relaxed jurisdiction for their fellow officers. It makes the job of city police easier. The state executive office of public safety which has jurisdiction over the campus police joins the city council, the city manger and the police commissioner, allowing HUPD to do whatever they want to do with no accountability. One more case of absolute power corrupting absolutely.
