Ole Miss Police Chief Calvin Sellers said even though arrests were up in 2010, making arrests takes a backseat to educating people on crime prevention.

Sellers said unlike the Oxford Police Department, the university population is primarily 18 to 30-year-olds, and that means the university police department has to operate differently.

Even though arrests were up in 2010, Campus Police Chief Calvin Sellers does not believe that crime was up.

There were 111 drug charges compared to 33 in 2009, and DUIs were up from 20 to 71.

“It means that we as a police department are doing a better job of apprehending the criminals,” said Sellers, who has been the police chief for two and a half years. “It does not mean that crime is up.”

Sellers said the main reasoning for the upswing in arrests is staff stability.
