Mission Statement

The University Police Department will deliver effective and responsive law enforcement services to all persons on the State University of New York College at Cortland campus in a fair and equitable manner. As an integral part of the campus community, we are committed to communicating with those we serve and to join with them in establishing priorities to enhance the quality of life for the entire community.

The University Police Department embraces the following principles: 1) the provision of quality law enforcement services to the campus community; 2) the maintenance of high standards for personal and professional ethics and protection of constitutional rights; 3) the recognition that law enforcement personnel are part of the educational process in the campus community; 4) the importance of consultation, teamwork, and open discussion with campus constituencies on law enforcement and related safety matters; and 5) the appreciation of diversity of campuses.
