4 YVKDNESDAY, APRIL 9. ‘2OOB STOMP FROM PAGE 1 arts. "That’s why it's so artistic." Indeed. Stomp doesn't include any verbal dialogue, but the art ists let their "instruments" —some long rubber tubes, wooden poles and even matchboxes, to name a few do all the talking. And just when it appeared the performers had thrown in every thing but the kitchen sink, well, they used a few of those, too. Hanging by chains from four performers' necks were metal sink fixtures that acted as snare drums for one segment of the show. A few in attendance had hard times choosing their favorite parts, whether it was when the perform ers flicked lighters in rhythm, used enormous metal trash cans as stilts or played literally musi cal chairs, folding and unfolding them, slamming them onto the stage emphatically. “This is the second time I’ve seen them. The basketball sec tion was great." said senior Justin Tosco, referencing a segment of the show when performers rhythmi cally dribbled and passed around several basketballs in a percussion exhibition that might have made some wonder why these people weren't playing in San Antonio last Saturday. Tosco attended the show with 1 UNC 1 i ~ MORE HE AP PLANETARIUM AND SCIENCE CENTER \ 7 p.m., April 9, 2008 \ Morehead Banquet Hall \ A free public event \ Seating limited \ to first 300 people www.inoreheadplanctariuni.org IN ACCORDANCE WITH NC CODE 163-33(8), NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN: to the qualified voters of Orange County, the NC Primary Elections will be held on T uesday.

Chapel Hill resident Patrick Ingram, who hadn’t seen Stomp before. "1 liked when they pulled the trash out of the trash bag and used it as instruments." Ingram said. “I guess you could say it was a trashy show." Junior Andrew Magill said he'd seen Stomp in South Carolina before and was particularly impressed with his second viewing of the show. “1 want to be a Stomper now.” he joked. “Tell me when their next From Page One audition is." But nobody in attendance wait ed for the end of the performance to show their appreciation, at least not when prodded by one of the troupe's members, who jumped into the front row to start a wave. “For me. that was the best part of the performance,” Kang said. “I think that was probably the only wave Memorial Hall's ever seen."

In a 45-minute time span Tuesday afternoon, the Daily Tar Heel staff stationed near Kenan Stadium, the Pit and the Student and Academic Services Buildings saw no officers on patrol in those areas. The only police activity wit nessed was one officer giving park ing tickets on Stadjpm Drive. "1 have no idea what they wear. I've seen police cars, but I’m not sure if they’re Chapel Hill or University police," sophomore economics major Chelsea Jackson said. "I’d like to see more of them so I know ... if something happens, it will be a police officer that hears me scream." Buj other students feel like the police force is noticeable. “They seem to be a pretty visible presence." junior economics major Tom Koester said. "If I need to get in contact I feel like I would be able to pretty quickly that seems to be true all times of day." Night watch After hours, the number of offi cers drops by half to eight, and none are bike-mounted. Although fewer students roam the campus at night, about “2 per cent of violent crimes are commit ted at night, according to a 2005 analysis by the U.S. Department of Justice. And night is when spme stu dents said they feel uneasy, espe cially in light of the March 5 death of former Student Body President Eve Carson. Since then. DPS has not hired any additional officers or changed their patrol patterns. The department receives addi tional funding based on a state wide equation that considers new buildings and renovations on cam pus. meaning a campus expansion could bring additional officers. “For each additional 100.000 square feet, we would get an amount of funding for an officer," u A I. l CERTIFICATE FROORAM 8 'll j - SUMMER INTENSIVE "■ 3 JUNE 2-JULY S, 2 0 0 8 z HvAiil4llctl.

TYLER SURRATT, FRESHMAN. ON CAMPUS POLICE OfFICERS "McCracken said, adding that anew officer would probably earn about $35,000. depending on education, training and experience. Making the grade Although officers might not always be visible, DPS ensures that they have the training and experi ence necessary to handle situations. All officers must complete basic law enforcement training to sene, but UNCs department requires 12 additional weeks of training for new officers and retraining once or twice a year for current officers. McCracken said. “The total number of hours they spend in training is twice the mini mum standard for officers given by the state of North Carolina," said department spokesman Randy- Young. Individual officers aren’t the only ones who must meet certain standards the department as a whole also must meet 45.9 criteria to be nationally accredited. UNC was the first university in the state to become accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc., receiving the distinction in November 1995. “A lot of law enforcement agencies are flying bv the seat of their pants they’re reactive in their policy making." CALEA Program Manager Steve Mitchell said. “The accredita tion process forces you to be proac tive in your policy making." The accreditation process evalu ates a department on the basis of its organization, preparedness and daily operations. Accreditation is voluntary; so only three other N.C. schools have JEhr Daily iur Rrrl —r — ~m a A mK m M DTH/ADAM SHERWOOD UNC Department of Public Safety officer MJ Davies looks on while students play a game of mock beer pong in the Pit on Tuesday. been accredited, and three more are working toward it “They cover a pretty broad range of topics, everything from organi zation to training, career develop ment, patrol," Mitchell said. “You name it, we have standards on it." Are you afraid of the dark? Despite the high standards held by DPS. some students still feel uneasy on campus. “I’m usually up in the music building practicing fairly late, but I’ve done a lot less of that to pre vent walking back in the dark," said junior music major Leah Gibson. Some students said they are rid ing the P2P bus instead of walking at night and ensuring that friends get home safely with calls or by walking in groups. “When before it may have seemed cumbersome to pick some one up late at night now we’re more willing to do it" senior journalism major Mallory Cash said. But even with heightened aware ness, other students aren't chang ing their behaviors. Freshman TVler Surratt said he walked from Linda’s Bar and Grill on Franklin Street to Winston Residence Hall last week at about 2:30 am. “1 didn't see a single police offi cer, but the next night I may see three," he said. “That’s really an impossibility as far as funding, to literally be able to see an officer every time I’m out. “Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they're not there." Staff irriterAbby Farson contributed reporting. Contact the University Editor at email@example.com. BLUE LIGHTS FROM RAGE 1 be better placed elsewhere, citing Rosemary Street. He called the data student government used “fluffy." “1 think my experience of walk ing in that area for 20 years at all hours of the day ... trumps what ever you guys feel because I've been there a long time." Halpem said. And Terry acknowledged that other areas in the town also are good potential locations for call boxes. “Certamly if I were choosing the area to put blue light areas 1 may choose somewhere else," he said. "There are great numbers of areas ... that need improved lighting." Delores Bailey, executive direc tor of Empowerment Inc., a non profit community advocacy group, wanted greater consideration of the Northside neighborhood. “I would love to have them come to Northside, walk those streets and talk about perception then." Several said resident input wasn’t prioritized. But Rea Grainger, outgoing chair man of student government's town relations committee, said students tried to reach out to residents. He said student government asked residents to contact them and provided contact information. “We did ask for the town’s input," he said. *1 haven’t been contacted." Student Body President J.J. Raynor, who did not attend the meet ing, said that the strong opposition was uncalled for but that “we don’t consider their opposition indicative of the wider community." “The town members who approached our delegates afterwards were favorable to the project" The proposal is three years in the making. Former Student Body President Eve Carson stressed stu dents' safety concerns in September to the Chapel Hill Town Council. Residents expressed significantly less opposition to the town’s plans for additional street lighting, which is where the bulk of the funds about $52,000 will be directed. The proposal will go to the coun cil again in four to six weeks. In the meantime Raynor is urging students to write letters to council members. "The next step for students is just to make sure we really communicate how much we want this and how important this is to students." Contact the City Editor at citydesk(gmnc.edu.
