The Orange County Independent Task Force on Anti-Semitism applauds the U. C. Irvine Police Department and the U. C. Irvine Administration for deploying a large contingent of officers and maintaining a high profile during this years version of the contentious “Palestine awareness week”. We commend Chief Paul Henisey and his officers for their courtesy and professionalism. For the past several years we have criticized the U C Irvine administration for maintaining a negligible police presence and allowing Muslim Student Union members to act as security personal at highly contentious and potentially volatile events. The deployment of additional police officers this past week helped to insure the safety of students, faculty and everyone present.
