Posted at: 03/28/2013 6:32 AM

On Thursday, 24 members of University of Rochester security will be sworn in as the first official campus peace officers. It’s part of legislation signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo in December.

The next step for the officers is a five-month academy program for training and certification.

University President Joel Seligman will attend the ceremony at 3 p.m. at the Alumni Center on East River Road.
