LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Even though thousands of University of Wyoming students have left for the summer, the UW Police Department stays busy.

UW Police Chief Mike Samp says while his officers see fewer alcohol-related crime with students gone, officers get more calls about juveniles.

UW hosts several high school summer camps and schools, and Samp says some of these youths cause trouble on campus.

Samp also tells the Laramie Boomerang (https://bit.ly/29gp3bZ) that the numerous construction projects on campus also require security.

And the campus still holds summer courses.

But overall, crime reports are down and UW police uses any extra time to conduct training for officers.
