UTICA – Mohawk Valley Community College now has a brand new public safety facility, with the help of funding secured by state Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.
School officials unveiled the public safety’s newly renovated headquarters on Friday morning, which was made possible by a $250,000 state grant.
Improvements to the facility include an expanded dispatch room, separate offices for supervisors and officers, improved accessibility, news flooring and walls, improved lighting, and locker rooms with showers for staff members.
“One of the most important amenities any educational institution should offer is a secure campus students feel comfortable at," Brindisi said. "Through this grant, MVCC will provide public safety services in a facility designed for operating efficiency with improved accessibility for the public that will serve the college and the community for many years to come. This strong commitment to public safety will ensure that MVCC continues to grow and add to the quality of life here in the Mohawk Valley."
The total rebuild took about three months to complete.
“On behalf of Mohawk Valley Community College, I would like to thank Assemblyman Brindisi on his continued dedication to the community and his efforts to secure the funds needed for these improvements,” VanWagoner said in a news release. “Understanding the importance of community, we appreciate the partnership to create and sustain a safe environment.”
