The SUNY Alfred State University Police Department has been honored with two Best Practices Awards from Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA). This initiative is designed to build a database of valuable programs from which NASPA members can adopt and adapt for their own campuses. The awards were presented at the annual NASPA Campus Safety Knowledge Community meeting in Baltimore, Md.

The University Police Department received the Campus Safety Knowledge Community Award for Best Practices in General Categories for implementing the Values-Oriented Ten-Minute Training endeavor as part of an overall paradigm-shift within the department to a learning organization.

The department also received the Campus Safety Knowledge Community Award for Best Practices in Preparation for improving the use of force continuum by integrating it with the DRRM.

Law enforcement is coordinated on the Alfred State campus by the University Police Department, a fully accredited law enforcement agency. The department at Alfred State consists of a chief of police, department secretary, three lieutenants, four full-time dispatchers, and eight sworn police officers. All officers in this department are certified police officers in New York State.
