    This Day at the UA

    On Sept. 19, 1991, the Arizona Daily Wildcat reported that the University of Arizona Police Department was trying to increase how fast it responded to students in danger with methods ranging from emergency phones to bicycles for officers. “”The bicycles allow us to get out of the cars and be more accessible to the public,”” said Sgt. Brian Peastone. The previous year, there had been a murder on campus, one sexual assault and 11 aggravated assaults.

    Also that day, the Wildcat reported that Friends of Sobriety, a secular alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous and other groups, would begin holding weekly meetings on the UA campus. “”There are people in the community who’ve had experiences in AA and found themselves not well served,”” said Vaughn Huff, chief psychologist for UA Counseling and Testing Services.
