Test prep sessions set for upcoming UB police exam

Published July 11, 2022

The Buffalo Educational Opportunity Center (BEOC), which is part of UB, will host information and test preparation sessions starting July 13 for an upcoming civil service exam to become a New York State University Police officer at UB.

The first of these sessions are information sessions. In these sessions, University Police and BEOC representatives will provide an overview of law enforcement opportunities at UB and answer questions from attendees.

These sessions will be held in-person on July 13 and July 14 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the BEOC, 555 Ellicott St., Buffalo. Because both sessions will cover the same material, those interested should plan on attending one session.

To register, call BEOC at 716-645-8874, or visit BEOC’s website.

Following the information sessions, University Police and BEOC will host a series of test preparation sessions. Attendees have the option of attending in-person or remotely. Below are the schedules.
