Community Relations Team (CRT)

The Community Relations Team is made up of officers who act as liaisons to the University community. Each residence hall and several other campus groups have liaisons assigned to them. Liaisons provide a point of contact within the Miami University Police and are also available to give presentations on a variety of topics from crime prevention to personal safety and alcohol.
