They do not attend the NYSP Academy nor do they have their own Academy. They are all affiliated with the local academy for their respective regions. I.e. Westchester County Police Academy
They have little in terms of a centralizes state-wide command (although I would argue they should.) Instead, each SUNY PD is, in a sense, a completely separate entity. So the SUNY Purchase PD Chief has nothing to do with SUNY New Paltz PD and vice versa. I have long argued that all the SUNY PD's should be one agency, and each campus basically a branch of that central agency. NYS Civil Service gives an exam with the Title - "University Police Officer" which is a completely separate and distinct list from the State Police hiring list.
A story in either the Daily News of the Post within the last few years basically called for the same set-up that I had advocated.
EDIT: Here is one such story that I mentioned: My link
SUNY has 28 different campus police departments, each one with its own administrators, requisition policies, guidelines and even uniforms and insignias.
The report shows that there are 27 different police chiefs and 20 more deputy or assistant police chiefs on the SUNY payroll, making a combined $4.4 million. A host of them make more than $100,000 a year.
The report said the head of the campus police union estimates that consolidation of the SUNY police system could save the state $3 million.
