State Police to Lease Space at Former Cazenovia College


Governor Kathy Hochul announced Cazenovia College has been selected as the site that the New York State Police will lease for its new State Police Auxiliary Academy. The Governor plans to fund a large number of basic classes and has already set aside $66 million in the Fiscal Year 2023-2024.

“This expansion will also create opportunities for more candidates, which will support the State Police’s mission to diversify and grow its ranks.” Governor Hochul said in a release.

Hochul plans to allow for more growth within the police force, creating more room for minorities of all kinds as well as women.

Cazenovia College, which was recently closed in spring of 2023, will now see a new opportunity rise for part of the former campus. The Village of Cazenovia will also benefit from the reuse of the former college with an increase of those coming and visiting Cazenovia due to the academy.

Candidates can learn about becoming a New York State Trooper and sign up to take the exam at joinstatepolice.ny.gov.
