Tempe, ASU police go door-to-door to talk with campus neighbors

TEMPE, AZ - Tempe and ASU police went door-to-door Monday, trying to prevent problems before school starts, by talking with residents in neighborhoods surrounding campus.

On Monday, officers from both departments, ASU students and city officials teamed up to talk with residents in the neighborhoods surrounding Daily Park off Apache Boulevard about any problems they have or had with ASU students.

ASU officials say the main message Monday - no matter which agency a person contacts about a problem --everyone will work together to solve it.

The teams handed out brochures that explained the laws regarding loud noise ordinances.

ASU officials say they want to make sure the first few weeks of school are as safe as possible as many students transition into their new lives as Sun Devils.

Tempe police Lt. Mike Pooley said another one of the objectives for the event is to foresee potential problems.

In 2014, ASU moved 24 of its fraternities back onto college-campus housing at the Villas at Vista del Sol apartments.

In 2012, ASU closed Alpha Drive, where fraternities and sororities had houses.

The majority of fraternities moved into neighborhoods off of: Broadway Road to University Drive and McClintock to Mill Avenue.

Tempe police called the area the “Loud Party Corridor” in a 21-page document, outlining numerous problems in the neighborhood.
