  • Thank you Harrison PD!

    We thank the members of the Harrison Police Department - including Lt. John Vasta, pictured here with Supervisor of Safety & Facilities Brandon Cruz - who this morning toured our Mamaroneck Avenue training center. 

    Their walkthrough allowed them to offer expert insights to improve the safety and security of our building, which houses three SWBOCES centers and numerous departments and programs. 

    Our school districts are encouraged to invite local law enforcement agencies to do the same. This helps to familiarize officers with the layout of facilities to better support them during responses to emergency events. We appreciate their partnership!
