University Police to begin training sessions

PLATTSBURGH — SUNY Plattsburgh’s University Police will engage in one of four active-shooter response training drills on campus today. 

The training, recognized as a best practice by the New York State Department of Criminal Justice, will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the public areas of Wilson Hall, a high-rise dorm building located behind Clinton Dining Hall.

Officers will be carrying unloaded training weapons during parts of the drills, and students and community members may notice an increased police presence in and around the building while the training is taking place.

The drills will also be held during the same hours on Tuesday, Jan. 8, Tuesday, Jan. 15 and Thursday, Jan. 17. 

Signs indicating the drills are in progress will be posted near Wilson Hall each day of the training. 

Students who live in the building have been privately notified about what to expect on these days, however, most residents are off campus for winter break.
