For the first time, the public can view the names and photos of individuals that have been temporarily banned from University of Arizona properties, officials said.

The exclusionary policy was adopted in 2006 to temporarily restrict people who have engaged in disruptive behavior or committed crimes from either specific areas or the whole campus, said University of Arizona Police Chief Brian Seastone.

The online list, which can be viewed on the UAPD's website, includes the person's name, photo, the areas they are banned from and the date that they are banned through. As of Tuesday, there were 38 men and women on the list.

Exclusionary orders are requested by the university president, a dean, director, department head or any other person designated as being in charge of a specific area, building, facility activity or event, Seastone said.

The orders can be issued for a minimum of six months and extended up to a year, and will be initiated by a UAPD officer who either witnesses illegal or disruptive behavior, is asked to by a campus official or feels it's necessary to maintain campus safety.

"The purpose of posting the names and photos of the individuals is to aid the UA community in knowing who is currently excluded, and from what areas of the UA campus," Seastone said.

A person who is given an exclusionary order can request that it be reviewed by the Vice President for Business Affairs and Human Resources within five days or service, and the review will take place within 30 days.
