Community Review Board Soliciting Feedback From the University Community on DPS Policies
The University’s Community Review Board (CRB), responsible for reviewing and commenting on prospective new Department of Public Safety (DPS) policies, procedures and trainings is seeking feedback on two community facing standard operating procedures from the DPS.
The first is a revision to an existing policy designed to provide DPS guidance for arrests made in academic classrooms and settings, and the second is a new policy to ensure DPS compliance to disclose potential exculpatory and impeachment evidence in criminal cases. The full policy revision and recommendations are available online [PDF] for review.
On Wednesday, Feb. 1, from 6 to 7 p.m., the CRB will host a webinar titled “Community Review Board (CRB) Public Meeting Regarding Prospective SOPs,” where representatives from the DPS and CRB will present the policies and revisions. Attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions during the session. Registration for the webinar is not required; attendees can join via Zoom.
“Even if you are unable to attend the webinar, we still want to hear the feedback you have regarding these two policies from DPS,” says Brianna Sclafani, the CRB chair who is also a law student in the College of Law and graduate student in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. “We encourage all students, faculty and staff to review the proposed policies and submit their feedback to the CRB by sending an email to CRB@syr.edu,” she added.
