Law enforcement is coordinated on the Alfred State campus by the University Police Department, a fully accredited law enforcement agency. This department consists of a chief of police, department secretary, three lieutenants and seven sworn police officers. All officers in this department are certified police officers in New York State.
The University Police department also has four full time dispatchers who manage the communications center and are responsible for receiving not only standard University Police calls for service but campus 911 calls as well. The communications staff are responsible for dispatching officers to these calls. The blue emergency call boxes across campus are also answered by the UPD dispatchers. These emergency blue light telephones are communication devices that place a person in direct contact with University Police by the simple touch of a button. Once pressed, a speaker phone allows the dispatcher to talk with the caller and send help immediately. Emergency blue light telephones are only to be used in emergency situations.
The University Police department at Alfred State conducts vehicular, bicycle, and foot patrols 24-hours a day, 365 days a year on campus and in the residence hall areas.
