After extensive renovations, SUNY Canton’s Dana Hall is now home to the Center for Criminal Justice, Intelligence & Cybersecurity. Built in 1967, Dana Hall was the original athletic facility and one of three campus buildings designed with unique glulam structural beams. The building was slated for demolition because of structural issues with the beams. However, with the help of a specialized consultant, all beams were repaired and structural concerns resolved, freeing the building up for the growing criminal justice programs.
To meet the space requirements of the programs, a decommissioned swimming pool was infilled, and the second floor was extended. The new floor area allowed for the creation of classrooms, forensics lab, criminal investigation lab, crime scene staging room, practice interrogation rooms, classrooms, and faculty offices.
The University Police required a command center, lobby, offices, holding room, evidence room and renovated locker rooms. To support the new programs, the facility’s MPE systems received a complete upgrade. The center is also home to the St. Lawrence County Law Enforcement Academy and SUNY Canton Corrections Academy.
