Crisis On Campus: Shots Fired--campus security video
This video was prepared by the campus security department at SUNY New Paltz.1 replies

The tragic event that occurred at Virginia Tech has reinforced our commitment to the safety of our college community. In a proactive approach to all crisis situations, SUNY New Paltz has in place a comprehensive emergency response plan. When this plan is activated, an emergency response team coordinates action from specific departments to immediately handle the situation. The team also initiates a crisis communication and notification plan.
Campus Police are certified New York State police officers and consistently trained for crisis situations, similar to the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech. This includes how to secure the campus, immediately protect potential victims, and evacuate an area or building if necessary. Along with the college's emergency response plan, campus police work cooperatively with all area law enforcement and emergency response agencies in responding immediately as outlined in the countywide emergency response plan.
