New Binghamton Officer Focuses on Off-Campus Students

(Source: Fox 40 Staff)

Binghamton University students living off campus this year will see a new face this fall.
   
Friday Binghamton Mayor Rich David and Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger announced the assignment of patrolman Dan Flanders. Flanders will work to build relationships between local residents and off campus students. The roughly $50,000 salary of the officer will be covered by the University. The city will pay for his benefits.

"Flanders will give us that connectivity between our student conduct process and the city criminal process, so I think this adds a little bit of teeth to making sure that students do the right thing," said Stenger.

"We want to make this position very approachable I want to be proactive and establish relationships of the students and the residents," said Flanders.

The appointment of Flanders is part of Mayor David's Youth Success Initiative. The Mayor has added five police officer positions since taking office this year.
