KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - School is back in session, and the Western Michigan University campus is flooded with students again.

Friday, Newschannel 3 asked the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety what they are doing to ensure the safety of the students, and keep parties from getting out of control.

"We put on extra patrols to maintain a visual presence in the area," said Sergeant Matt Schemenauer. "Also, if your party is getting a little too big, please call us, and we would be more than happy to close down your party for you."

KDPS says they will have six to eight extra officers on campus during the beginning of the school year.

They're hoping to avoid situations like earlier thsi year, when officers had to use tear gas to get hundreds of students that gathered at a party near campus under control.
