DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY
MOHAWK VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Developing a safe and secure environment where a quality education may be achieved is the responsibility of the entire community. Within our community, the Department of Public Safety is committed to it's leadership role in developing programs, methods and approaches to assist the institution toward achieving a reasonably safe and secure environment.
The department exists to support the goals of the College, to assist those who seek and impart knowledge, as well as those who provide support to the mission of the institution. The department strives to provide an environment where diverse social, cultural and academic values may prosper and grow.
All Peace Officers of the department are expected to be sensitive to the unique nature of the College community and realize they serve to assist the department and the institution in the achievement of our goals. Members of the department do have arrest powers as Peace Officers defined in the NYS Criminal Procedure Law. It is only through our collective efforts that our mission will be accomplished.
