DPS Now Accepting Applications for First Community Police Academy
The Syracuse University Department of Public Safety (DPS) is currently accepting applications for its first Community Police Academy. The department invites all students, faculty and staff to apply for this free four-week program designed to give community members an idea of what it is like to protect and serve the campus community.
“I am thrilled to bring this program to Syracuse University,” says Associate Vice President and DPS Chief Craig Stone. “Our goal is to give our community members insight into the training and scenarios that our staff may face while protecting our campus community. My hope is that the participants realize that not only is this an opportunity to learn, but also to interact and engage with our staff, cultivating productive conversations and generating new ideas for collaborating.”
For the Fall 2022 semester, the program will run on the four consecutive Wednesdays in October from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Lyman Hall. The classes will include both classroom lecture and on-hands training. Dinner will be provided all four weeks. To learn more and apply, visit dps.syr.edu.
