College of Staten Island Safety Notice: Burglaries in Administration Building

On Monday morning, Aug. 27, Campus Public Safety was notified of a break-in of the Purchasing Office inside of Building 3A. The NYPD was called and responded to the scene with their Evidence Collection Team. Subsequently, this morning, a second break-in was reported in the Office for Parking Services located in the same building. This second incident occurred at approximately 4:00am this morning. The NYPD also responded to this incident and we hope that the security footage and evidence NYPD collected will assist in the apprehension of the responsible individual(s).

If you have any information regarding this incident or the possible identity of suspects, we encourage you to contact Campus Public Safety Director, Michael Lederhandler at 718.982.2113 or via email michael.lederhandler@csi.cuny.edu.
