We, the undersigned members of the Tufts community, are committed to ending military training trips between the Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) and any foreign military. We condemn Maguire's participation in the "counter-terrorism" seminar and demand that Tufts issue a public statement apologizing for sending Maguire on the trip and committing to never participate in trainings with foreign militaries ever again. We demand accountability from TUPD and therefore demand a town hall concerning policing and a community advisory board made up of students, faculty and staff, and community members that oversee TUPD, including their actions, trainings, and budget. We demand an end to militarized police and a move instead towards demilitarization.
