Campus police at IU Southeast are helping students with an imporant learning curve to help them eat healthier and reduce false fire alarms caused by burnt food.
Lt. Steve Miller’s Food with 5-0 program offers cooking classes to students living in IU Southeast lodges. Students not only learn tips on how to keep themselves from setting off fire alarms, but also how to prepare deliciously easy dishes that won’t break the bank. Miller is a 15-year veteran of IUPD who enjoys sharing his culinary talents with those he protects and serves on an everyday basis.
Students leave the session with a new recipe, some helpful safety ideas, and a positive relationship with IUPD.
“The greatest benefit of the Food with 5-0 program is to get students to see IUPD as human and to interact with us in a non-traditional way,” said IUPD-Southeast Chief Charles Edelen.
IUPD and IU Public Safety is part of Public Safety and Institutional Assurance, which falls under the Office of the Executive Vice President for University Academic Affairs and the Office of the Vice President for IT and CIO.
