Johns Hopkins draft document maps out private police jurisdiction

Johns Hopkins University released a memorandum of understanding between it and the Baltimore Police Department as the university moves forward with establishing its own private police force. According to the draft document, Johns Hopkins will create a police force to patrol the university's campuses in Homewood, Peabody and east Baltimore (click links for maps). Their jurisdiction would include garages, sidewalks and streets within those boundaries. The only times when university police officers would be able to exercise police powers off campus would be when they are pursuing a suspect or if they're needed to help direct traffic. The mayor's office could also be called in an emergency situation.
