ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Monroe Community College announced that its public safety officers will be using long rifles to ensure the safety of the community on campus.

On Monday, MCC’s President Burt-Nanna announced at the Board of Trustees meeting that long rifles would be added to the tools that campus officers will have on hand. This decision was made after a college-wide consultation in 2023 where those involved in the school and County Executive Adam Bello discussed additional equipment and training of MCC’s peace officers.

The school said that the decision was made so that in “unfortunate circumstances” should such a need arise, MCC peace officers will be prepared and ready to respond with local law enforcement agencies.

Officials at the school stated that the peace officers at MCC, receive the same training and certifications as our local police through the Police Academy at the Public Safety Training Facility. They said that the school’s officers will use these weapons and secure them out of plain sight unless a “violent critical incident” arises where their use becomes necessary.
