SUNY Oswego understands the importance of good communication between our agency and the community we serve. The Communications Division is the vital link between police, citizens, emergency medical service, and the fire department. Professionally trained and qualified dispatchers provide information to police officers and the community that is essential to campus safety. One of the most important aspects of law enforcement is communicating with its police officers; often, dispatchers are the first line of communication between the community and police.

The Communications Center is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by Police Dispatchers who are under the supervision of Police Lieutenants. The University Police Department is located at in Pathfinder Hall. To report emergencies, call 315.312.5555,  or from a campus phone, 5555 or 911. Communication Officers assigned to this division are the primary point of contact for emergency and non-emergency requests for police services. Dispatchers are trained to determine the type of response that is needed.
