SAN ANTONIO -- University of the Incarnate Word officials are refusing to release documents outlining its police department's standard operating procedures.

The denial comes while a UIW officer remains on administrative leave after he shot and killed senior student Cameron Redus, of Baytown, following a traffic stop Dec. 6.

In an open letter posted Wednesday in an online edition of UIW's school newspaper, the university's president, Dr. Lou Agnese, assured students that the school is assisting Alamo Heights police and the Texas Rangers in every way possible.

Alamo Heights Police Chief Richard Pruitt said Dec. 9 he was not completely comfortable with how information was being shared between the school and his department.

A police spokeswoman told the I-Team on Thursday that the university eventually did hand over a copy of its policies and procedures, but she would not say when or why there was a delay.

In Agnese's open letter, he also said he hoped to sit down with the Redus family at some point.
