Faculty/Staff Detail

Melissa McGrady, Esq., University Police Department, recently received certification from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services as a police juvenile officer. Her certification completes the department’s goal to have four juvenile officers in preparation for the state’s Raise the Age initiative. By October 2018, the age for criminal responsibility will be raised to 18 years of age. With the new law in place, many first-year students that are 17 years old will now be treated as juveniles should they enter the criminal justice system.
