A Message from Department of Public Safety Chief Tony Callisto

Fall 2014

Dear Parents,

Recently, I have heard some concerns raised regarding the safety of students on and near campus. As the father of a daughter who recently graduated from Syracuse and two sons who currently attend, I fully understand your concerns regarding safety and security on and near campus. One crime is one too many, and we have taken a series of comprehensive actions, and put in place new initiatives over the past few years, to do everything we possibly can to reduce the likelihood of crime in the off‐campus neighborhoods that border the University.
