Letter to Yale University Administration: Abolish the YPD
February 1, 2021

Dear President Salovey and Yale University administration,

We, the undersigned academic workers at Yale, call for the disarmament and abolition of the Yale Police Department. We ask for a robust Differential Response System without armed police, and a redirection of funds for policing to New Haven organizations that support underserved communities. In the wake of the murders of Black men, women and trans people nationwide by police in the last twelve months alone, we recognize, as the administration must, that the Yale Police Department is not an exception to this trend.

As faculty members, post-docs, graduate students, and other academic workers, we have been inspired by the demands made by undergraduate students and colleagues in response to racist incidents in our own institution and city over the past several years. In 2019, Yale and Hamden police shot an unarmed black couple, Stephanie Washington and Paul Witherspoon. In 2020, state police officers killed 15-year-old Mubarak Soulemane in West Haven. Structural racism and its expression in policing also directly affect Yale students on campus; consider, for example, the 2018 case of a white Yale graduate student who called the police on a black graduate student who was taking a nap in the student lounge of a shared residence hall.

Our demands follow strong and vocal movements among Yale’s undergraduate students. We thus join in their calls for these immediate changes:

The disarmament of the Yale Police Department;
That Yale University implement a robust Differential Response System devoid of police officers by the end of the 2020–21 Academic School Year;
That Yale University begin defunding the Yale Police Department, with the goal of dismantling the YPD by 2023;
That Yale reinvest these funds to support New Haven organizations that protect, serve and uplift Black and Brown communities.

Perhaps because Yale has the oldest campus police department in the country (1894), it may be difficult to imagine its community without a police force. But police departments on college campuses are the global exception, not the norm. Colleges and universities across our own country, and all over the world, maintain safety for their students without in-house police forces. It bears noting that the rise and proliferation of armed campus police forces in the United States was not a response to a rise in crime; it was a response to the student uprisings of the 1960s and 1970s. The signatories of this letter recognize that police abolition is a complicated issue, and while we may not all advocate for the wholesale abolition of municipal policing, we all agree that police forces have no place in universities.

Finally, we ask that Yale make these changes immediately. We do not ask for a task force, a committee, or an external review that will inevitably recommend reform. We already know that police reform is inadequate. Indeed, if police reform were effective, then we would not be faced with the rising, instead of falling, numbers of police shootings over the past decade. If police reform worked, members of families, communities, and universities would be alive and among us instead of being grieved and remembered. If police reform worked, the massive protests demanding justice for victims of police brutality in Portland, Kenosha, Ferguson, Philadelphia, Portland, and New Haven would not be so immediate, so pressing, or so widely supported. Policing does not make Yale University, or New Haven “safer.” Instead, policing enforces the divide between Yale and New Haven, and puts community members in both--especially those who are poor, Black, Latinx, and gender nonconforming--at risk. This is an opportunity for Yale University to improve its long-standing strained relationship with the city and to set a moral example for other universities by fulfilling its mission of “improving the world today and for future generations.”

In solidarity,
