    And victims would be offered the option of reporting an assault to state police rather than campus authorities or a local police department.

    "You have my word," the governor said, that state police "will handle this professionally and will understand who the victim is."


    If this is implying what I think it is, EVERY PBA and police union should be up in arms, including the troopers union. This is no time to be dividing the ranks with everything else going on

    Why?..... ........
    For the cops out there: You are an adult. If you want to write someone, write them. If you don't want to write someone, then don't write them.

      Because it seems to imply that the local or campus police would forget who the victims are, and that the state police are "better than" the local agencies

        It probably has something to do with mandatory reporting requirements. It references private colleges and their respective campus police / security, which often don't have the robust systems to deal with all the bs reports they are going to have to start taking as a result of the law. It doesent appear to be a knock on anyone the way I read it.

        Also - in most states a crime can be reported in the jurisdiction it occurred, the jurisdiction where the victim is, or the jurisdiction where the suspect is. That can make reporting a sex assault more challenging when a student goes home during a school recess or break. It's just opening up more reporting avenues and a "political win" for the powers that be.

        Take a deep breath. It's all gonna be ok

          Most private institutions sweep crimes under the rug. Including robberies, rapes, larcenies, etc.

          CUNY and SUNY schools do what they gotta do with their police force. Private schools hire security guards and the mightily administration would rather not tarnish its name so crimes are unfounded.

            The option of reporting ANY crime on a college campus by the victim goes either to NYSP, County Sheriff or local PD. SUNY institutions have their own police force.
