Violent Felony Offense Investigations

As required by New York State law, upon receipt of a complaint or report that a violent felony has occurred on campus, the Campus Safety Department will immediately respond, thoroughly investigate, and document a report of their findings. The responding officers will verify the nature of the incident and determine if the incident occurred on the Union College campus or during an off-campus event sponsored by the College. The Campus Safety Department will notify and coordinate further investigation of the criminal incident with the Schenectady Police Department. Victims of crimes, especially violent felony crimes, will be assisted, if requested, in making a report of the incident to the Schenectady Police Department.
