The University Police Department is thankful to have been honored by the Undergraduate Student Government and the Stony Brook community for their appreciation of police officers. Members of UPD and USG gathered at the Student Recreation Center for a day of basketball and volleyball to further strengthen the bond between the campus community and law enforcement.
Stony Brook University hosted University Police Officers from SUNY Westbury, SUNY Farmingdale, SUNY Downstate and Stony Brook and trained participants in the Fair & Impartial policing model program, which applies the modern science of bias to policing; it trains officers on the effect of implicit bias and gives them the information and skills they need to reduce and manage their biases. Fair & Impartial Policing is a cornerstone of procedural justice and an important achievement of agency legitimacy. Click on the banner to visit the Fair and Impartial Policing Website.
University Police Dispatchers have completed over 40 hours of classroom and scenario based training and have each earned an Emergency Police Dispatch Certification. This training included topics on caller interviewing techniques, improving scene safety for callers and responders, improving chances of suspect apprehension, active assailant drills, and relaying critical information to responders.
