Suffolk University’s Student Government Association (SGA) has sent out more than one Firearm Survey in recent years, with one dating back to 2009. At that time, Suffolk students had a general consensus of not approving the Suffolk Police Department (SUPD) being armed. In the most recent survey that was sent to the Suffolk community on Dec. 13, 2017, it displayed different results as nearly 54 percent of the population that completed the survey said they would feel safer within the university’s area if sworn SUPD officers were armed.
