University Police Earns State Accreditation

University police officer Evan Proulx ’03 with students

University Police at SUNY Oswego attained state accreditation in March, an achievement that marks it as one of only 10 departments in the State University system and fewer than 150 police agencies of all kinds statewide to meet scores of exacting standards of professionalism.

The state Law Enforcement Accreditation Council provided formal recognition that University Police meets or exceeds expectations of quality in administration, training and operations. Achieving accreditation requires a department to demonstrate the effectiveness of its policies supporting 133 standards, covering everything from fiscal responsibility to firearms training and treatment of crime victims to evidence handling.
