So today the Utica police were at Payne hall because security couldn't respond fast enough to a male running through the building. This is the 3rd incident this week at the college. Weapons,stabbings, and arrest are all in a days work here in our little community college. I think that maybe if the guards spent more time in diff buildings and less time huddled in college center or in the cafeteria then maybe we might be able to stop some of this from escalating. We all know that Denise Degigorio will simply get this swetp under the rug like always. I wonder why they even keep her there. It will be this kind of "hush hush" attitude that will lead to something BIG happening. Its only a matter of time.

the 4 security guards they have are older than dirt, the teachers could care less what happens as long as they can end class early.
the only time you see the security is when they are handing out tickets because you had to park 3 miles away and you happen to be outside the white lines.

yes they tell you after the fact that if you don't get there before the crack of dawn you don't get a parking spot and hopefully alot of people will drop and there will be more places to park. Wow all they care is about the money not the students. You get what you pay for in a Community College I guess. It's sad to say but getting to be more true everyday.

Last week a student was arrested for being in posession of a firearm on campus too. Nothing in the press. Then on Friday there was a large disturbance on campus.

Having taught at MV I have to disagree. Most of the Security force, on the swing and grave shift, are younger guys. All have passed the tests, and get receive training. While people like to make cracks, the department, as a whole, serves a purpose as needed as any small town police department. They are able to keep the peace with some 3-5,000 students coming and going, 700 on campus dorm students and everything else that goes on.

While you mock what they do, they do it well and the campus is safe. As for the tickets, try parking in downtown Utica or anywhere else incorrectly-tickts are a part of our system. The chief of the campus department is a former PD chief and has more on the ball than the Commissioner of the UPD.

UTICA —

Mohawk Valley Community College officials are investigating a fight that took place on its campus Friday afternoon.

MVCC spokeswoman Joan Adrek said initial indications are that three to five people were involved, and the incident stemmed from an prior dispute that occurred off-campus.

“We understand the altercation is kind of a spill-over from, apparently, from something that happened off campus,” Adrek said late Friday afternoon.

Adrek said the college was interviewing witnesses and believes that some of the participants may not be college students.

Utica police Capt. Jim Watson said officers were sent to the incident, but no arrests were made. He said only “one side” of the conflicting parties was present, and those people were uncooperative in helping to identify the others involved.

Watson said the investigation is closed because of the determination that the fight was mutual.

“There's no complainant,” Watson said.

Adrek said MVCC has not been able to identify the people involved in the incident, and the college would discipline any students found to be involved.

Watson and Adrek said they were unaware of anyone having gone to the hospital as a result of the fight.

MVCC encourages anyone with knowledge of the incident to come forward.

“The important thing for us is, we will conduct a full investigation,” Adrek said.“When there are students found to be involved, they will be disciplined.”

maybe mvcc should look into hiring offduty oneida county sherrif patrol officers to work security, just as the city does at their schools , with off duty upd officers . seems to work for utica .

Hey Captain Fraudo, go crawl back under your rock. Nobody on here is interested in reading more of the lies you put up here under the guise of you having "inside info". You disappointed a lot of people who had believed you for so long, but the free ride for your ego is over now. Everyone knows what a fraud you are after you got caught in your own lie and exposed as a fraud on the thread titled "Mayors Roast". You can't just hide for 3 weeks hoping we would all forget about it and then come on here and post more lies like nothing ever happened.

For anyone who wants to see for themselves what a liar and coward Captain Fraudo is, just go and read the "Mayors Roast" thread.

Captain Insaneo is right, as much as I hate to agree with him, his statement in this thread are 100% accurate.
Both incidents he is speaking of did happen on the MVCC Utica campus in the last 2 weeks.

Yeah, he got it right when it was already reported in the paper and on the news. That's easy for anyone to do. I'm talking about all these things he claims to know that weren't in the news. He tries to portray himself as someone who has an inside track on info that isn't available to the public. The problem is that most of what he says isn't true. He likes making people think that he is important, but after that "Mayors Roast" thread we all know how insignificant he really is.

Sorry. I forgot to add this.

You can see what I mean if you read his post above. See how he says "nothing in the press"? As if he knows something that the public isn't privy to. The problem here is that it WAS IN THE PRESS. That story was reported by the OD and WKTV when it happened.

Once again, Captain Fraudo lies to get attention.

Obviously he didn't get the gun arrests from the OD or WKTV because that story was not listed. That story was only knowledge to the Faculty, Security, and UPD on campus at the time. At 2:30 in the morning no one was working to report news at either media outlet. I also doubt now that Gatehouse Media has been notified by the SEC that it will be delisted from the NYSE prior to Oct 24 opening - even less news will be reported. So BS buy some toilet paper and wipe harder, you left some on your keyboard. As for the roast it was fairly raunchy from our Bobbi who kisses so softly in the night.

The incident with the gun was not reported in the media. The student in question claimed that he had purchased the gun and ammo as a gift for his father. Not wanting to keep both in the same location, he put the gun in his car and the ammo in his dorm room. Unfortunately for him, he had waaaaaaayyyyy too much ammo in his room for his story to be credible. He was arrested by UPD and is being charged.
The incident with the knife occured during the day, and apparently began when a group of black kids from Proctor came to MVCC and began an argument with MVCC students in the cafeteria. They were kicked out by MV officials, but continue the fight outside near the dorms. Nobody was stabbed. They came back today and attempted to start something, but the UPD arrived within 5 minutes and the students fled.
