Services for International Employees & Scholars


We rely on the police to keep us safe and treat us all fairly, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin or religion.  The police offer many services to their local communities.  Here in Lawrence, you are most likely to see officers from either the University of Kansas Public Safety Office or the Lawrence Police Department.

Interacting with the police here in the United States can be very different than how you interact with the police in your home country.  The American Civil Liberties Union has a great presentation titled, “Know your rights: What to do if you’re stopped by police, immigration agents or the FBI.”  Please remember that this information is not intended as legal advice.
