This interview is part of a series about a series of football games called the Hairy Bacon Bowl that took place between University of Colorado students with counterculture leanings on the one hand, and campus and city police officers, on the other hand, as a way to address those tensions. Bill Robbins, who was a campus police officer from 1968 to 1972, helped to organize and played in the first two of these games. He brings the perspective of having been a Vietnam veteran and an older college student as well as a campus police officer. He describes coming up with the idea for the games due to his desire to improve communication between the student and police groups, what it was like to play in the games, and how he thinks they were successful in their goal. He also talks about being on the police side of anti-war and other protests, hippies in town during that era, the sense of danger he sometimes experienced as a police officer, and his philosophy of how to defuse tense situations.
