The University Police at SUNY Cortland, a police force of 19 sworn officers, coordinates law enforcement and personal safety on campus and University-owned property.
We are an established police department with deep roots in community policing. We firmly believe that our police officers are the guardians of the community. The officers emphasize social service, community partnerships, and establishing positive contacts. Our department follows these principles; treat all people with dignity and respect, give citizens a voice during encounters, be neutral and transparent in decision making, and conveying trustworthy motives.
