Protect New York at FSC
September 8, 2015
Protect New York, a think tank devoted to research and education to help protect New Yorkers from terrorism and natural disasters, has found a new home at Farmingdale. The organization, which was founded in 2006, will be housed in the Department of Criminal Justice located in Sinclair Hall.
According to John Kostanoski, former president of Protect New York and professor of criminal justice, FSC was selected from among a host of SUNY schools because of its long history and strong academic programs in the protection field. Once the group is up and running, students in the criminal justice program will be offered student memberships leading to professional networking opportunities.
“Hosting Protect New York is recognition of the contributions the college has made over the past 50 years to the field of police education,” says Professor Kostanoski. “Protect New York will serve as a center for collaboration and communication within the protective sciences.”
