SUNY New Paltz University police released their yearly report showing that calls were up and arrests were down in 2017. This is the first time the report has been shared on social media.
Last year, the university police report says police had more than 9,000 calls for service, which is up by more than 3,000 calls compared to the year before. Police also report that there were 125 arrests in 2017, down from 141 the year before.
In addition to responding to incidents, officers also banked nearly 2,600 hours in training on topics ranging from LGBTQ issues to opioid overdose.
The department says they've accomplished some things on the to-do list: a customer satisfaction survey, added social media presence, and coffee-with-a-cop events to reach out.
The report also included the results of the first satisfaction survey of students, in which 37 percent of students polled say they strongly agree they feel safe on campus, and 35 percent say they agree that the campus is safe.
