Victim and Witness Assistance

It is the Policy of DPS  that all members of the Department, both sworn and non-sworn, will treat all victims and witnesses with fairness, respect, compassion, and dignity, and reasonably protect them from harm.

The DPS has a Tri-Fold Pamphlet listing the New York State Crime Victims Bill of Rights and the contact information of campus and community services to assist them.

Any person needing access to crime victim or witness services, counseling or information may receive that by contacting the DPS either in person at 005 Sims Hall on College Place, or by telephone at 315.443.4595.
