MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange has purchased a Response to Resistance Simulator that will enhance SUNY Orange’s Criminal Justice curriculum while expanding a partnership to train local law enforcement officers.

The recently purchased TL-100 Training Lab was made possible by the SUNY Orange Foundation. It will allow SUNY Orange Criminal Justice students—those seeking law enforcement careers as well as students intending to enter such professions as legal affairs and social work—to experience simulated real-life scenarios. Students will gain an advanced understanding of potential situations that they may encounter as law enforcement professionals and gain a fuller perspective of the real-time decisions and stresses that confront law enforcement agents.

“The College is grateful for this partnership and the work that the SUNY Orange Foundation put forth to facilitate it,” Erika Hackman, vice president for academic affairs said. “Being able to acquire this type of innovative equipment allows us to provide our students with more authentic learning experiences that will be extremely valuable to them in their careers. This gift demonstrates the level of academic excellence that is possible when the College and the Foundation work hand-in-hand with our partners in the community.”

The College will also collaborate with local law enforcement agencies to offer access to the TL-100 for their training needs.

“I want to thank SUNY Orange, Dr. (Kristine) Young and the entire staff for their partnership on this simulation equipment,” Sheriff Carl DuBois said. “This program, which will provide real-world experience in a safe, secure environment, will help to enhance the already excellent training provided to law enforcement and, more importantly I believe, will save lives. Instruction and practical student use of the simulator will further generate classroom discussion, exchanging of ideas, and will expand the curriculum.”

Many law enforcement professionals within the Hudson Valley are graduates of SUNY Orange. Over the years, under the guidance of O’Loughlin, the College’s Criminal Justice Department has nurtured mutually beneficial relationships with many local law enforcement agencies, including the Sheriff’s Office, Orange County Chief’s Association and Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

SUNY Orange offers associate’s degrees in criminal justice (designed for transfer to a four-year college or university) and police science (designed to prepare graduates for the workforce), as well as a certificate in law enforcement/security.
