With the ongoing demolition of the parking garage on Jefferson Avenue, there will be some spillover by the construction crews and vehicles into the surrounding streets that will impact the normal flow of traffic in certain areas around the campus. In the days ahead, we expect some barriers and detours to be established and the following changes to occur:

Traffic changes on Jefferson Avenue:

Vehicular traffic on Jefferson between Blaine and Delavan will be one-lane in each direction.
Pedestrians will need to use the sidewalk on the east side of Delavan (closest to the houses) to get to and from Health Science and the Koessler Athletic Center.

Traffic changes on Delavan Avenue:

Vehicular traffic on Delavan between Jefferson and the NFTA station will be one-lane in each direction.
Pedestrians need to use the sidewalk on the south side of Delavan (closest to Health Science) to get to Health Science and the Koessler Athletic Center.

Westbound traffic on Delavan will not be able to turn onto Spillman and the Koessler Athletic Center Upper Lot. Refer to the directions below.

To access the Spillman Lot and the Rear Health Science Lot:

Heading south on Main Street: Proceed to Florida Street (just passed the Koessler Athletic Center), turn left onto Florida Street, turn left onto Spillman, and turn right into the lot.
Heading south on Jefferson Avenue: Proceed to Florida Street, turn right onto Florida Street, turn right onto Spillman, and turn right into the lot.

To access the Koessler Upper Lot and the Health Science Lot:

Heading south on Main Street: Proceed to Delavan Avenue, turn left onto Delavan, turn right into the KAC driveway, turn right into the Koessler Athletic Center Upper Lot or turn left into the Health Science Lot.
Heading south on Jefferson Avenue: Proceed to Florida Street, turn right onto Florida Street, turn right onto Spillman, turn left into the Health Science Lot and proceed to the Koessler Athletic Center Upper Lot.

Whether walking or driving, please adhere to all directional signage for your safety.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the construction.

Memorial Day, the holiday that takes place annually on the last Monday in May, is a dedicated day for honoring U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. Over 1.3 Million Americans paid the ultimate sacrifice to afford us the freedoms we take for granted every day. Thank you to all those soldiers that sacrificed so much so that we could enjoy the freedoms that we have.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims of today's tragedy as well as their family and friends.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year.

The National Peace Officers Memorial Service, which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, is one in a series of events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which is sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and seminars sponsored by Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)

National Police Week draws in between 25,000 to 40,000 attendees. The attendees come from departments throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world. This provides a unique opportunity to meet others who work in law enforcement. In that spirit, the Fraternal Order of Police DC Lodge #1 sponsors receptions each afternoon and evening during Police Week. These events are open to all law enforcement personnel and are an experience unlike any other.

Students good luck on your finals this week. Seniors, you're almost at the end of your undergrad career. Enjoy your last few weeks at Canisius!

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Students, welcome back for the spring semester! Seniors, you’re almost there before you know it you’ll be finishing the last classes of your undergraduate career. Make the most of this semester, responsibly of course. Remember all the Covid protocols that are in place. Everyone, stay safe.

12/25/2020

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Canisius Public Safety!!!

11/11/2020

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

Thank you to all our Veterans for their dedication and sacrifice for our country. Your bravery and selflessness do not go unnoticed.

A message from Dr. Sara Morris, VP for Academic Affairs:

Dear Canisius Community-

As the snow storm continues to impact our region, Canisius has decided that today’s evening classes will be offered in a virtual format. This decision means that any class that begins at 4:00 or later will not meet in a face-to-face format so that we do not bring a new population to campus, primarily commuters, during the evening rush hour. Classes and labs that begin earlier and extend after 4:00 may still be meeting on campus. Individual faculty members will let students know if their class will be changed to a virtual format or if an individual class is cancelled.

Our grounds-keeping staff have been working on snow removal since the storm began overnight, and crews will be working around the clock to clear the snow from campus roads, sidewalks, and parking lots. At this time, no decision has been made about Friday operations. Employees should consider bringing their laptop home in case remote work or classes are advised. If there is a change to normal operations, we will send an additional update to campus.

As always Public Safety is always open. We are located in the basement of Bosch Residence Hall. Do not hesitate to call with questions or concerns. We can be reached at 716-888-2330.
Public Safety mourns the loss of Police Officer John Painter and Campus Safety Officer J.J. Jefferson of the Bridgewater College Police Department who were shot and killed while responding to a suspicious person call on their campus.

Please use extra caution while driving around the side streets of Canisius. Some of the streets still have vehicles plowed in by snow mounds. Remember to drive safe and slowly around the area to avoid any issues. Also, please remember not to block the driveways of the residents in the neighborhood. If there any issues or concerns please let us know by calling 716-888-2330.
The Canisius College campus will be CLOSED today. Classes are cancelled and are expected to begin tomorrow, January 19, 2022. Only Essential staff shall report. Please check the library website for their hours of operation. Emergency services are available by calling Public Safety for assistance at 716-888-2330 or 911.
