Fort Collins Police Chief Resigns

Fort Collins Police Chief Dennis Harrison resigned Wednesday after 14 years of service to the city.

In an interview with the Coloradoan, Harrison said his resignation was not influenced by any particular controversies invoked by his department over the past few years, including the Timothy Masters case.

Harrison told the Coloradoan he is retiring from law enforcement but that he intends to pursue other fields and remain active in the Northern Colorado community.

“We certainly appreciate all of the work that Chief Harrison has done for CSU and for the larger Fort Collins community over the last 14 years, and wish him the best in future endeavors,” said CSU spokesman Brad Bohlander in a statement to the Collegian.

Admitted students invade CSU

Incoming CSU students will have the opportunity to experience campus life on Friday in honor of “Admitted Student Visit Day.”

Custom banners will greet admitted students to campus, and given that the event coincides with Founders Day –– the university’s birthday –– campus officials say students should show plenty of school spirit.

“It’s the perfect time for our students, faculty and staff to display their CSU pride to members of the Class of 2015,” said Jim Rawlins, executive director of the Office of Admissions, in a press release.

Display shows Colorado’s history of water disputes

In a display running in the Archives Department of the Morgan Library until March 23, interested CSU community members can learn about Colorado’s turbulent history of water conflict.

The new exhibit “Achieving a Lasting Peace? Reflecting on Conflicts, Courts and Compacts,” discusses changes in Colorado water law extending to the Arkansas River basin through the lens of a recent ‘Kansas vs. Colorado’ Supreme Court dispute.

The exhibit is located in Suite 202 of the Morgan Library and is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
