Our Officers

University Police Officers are required to have completed a minimum of 60 college credits in order to meet the minimum requirements established by NYS Civil Service. Many have earned Bachelor and Master degrees. After attending the 21-week basic police academy training, they also receive specialized training on numerous topics. After graduating from the basic police academy, Officers complete a 9-week Field Training (FTO) program. Our FTO program is twice as long as the minimum required by New York State.
