A day on the job is a lot closer to home for officers John Bush and Cameron Schneck of the URI Police Department. Both graduated from the university before they suited up as patrolmen for the campus police department. Bush, who graduated in 2002, came to URI on a football scholarship from 1995-1999. Schneck, a South Kingstown native, graduated in 2015. ‘We do want to help students we want them to know that they can look past the uniform, it’s just something that we wear,’ Schneck said. Both officers say they want students to know that they’re here to offer help.”
