Universty of Utah

The University of Utah is a sprawling 1800 acre campus that houses two major hospitals, a top ranked cancer research institute and a student population of over 28,000 bringing the combined community total to almost 50,000 people. Chief Scott Folsom and his team of dedicated police and security officers are committed to maintaining the safety and security of all those who live, study, work, and visit the campus daily. They also have the added logistical element of extensive construction currently underway throughout much of the area. Utilizing StreetSmart Police and Security units help them maneuver across the various terrains and cover more ground in less time, especially in places that they couldn’t take their vehicles. The StreetSmart Segway PTs have also helped them with public relations as the influx of parents and students have come for orientation and a tour of the campus. As they ride above the crowd they are easily identifiable and the ability to maneuver in tight spaces makes them readily approachable and able to answer questions and direct people where they need to go. The added visibility of the officers increases awareness and deters unwanted student behavior. Thank you Chief, and your 15 StreetSmart Certified Riders who are working hard to protect and serve in such a diverse environment.
