Students gathered together Monday afternoon to protest the position change of Department of Public Safety Officer Joe Shanley.

The voices of the Syracuse University community were heard at a rally held Monday afternoon on behalf of Former Cpl. Joe Shanley after the Department of Public Safety’s Law Enforcement and Community Policing Division modified his position.

More than 50 protestors expressed their support, gathering between Newhouse and Schine Student Center chanting Shanley's name and repeating “save Joe, don’t let him go.” Less than an hour after the protest concluded, DPS released a statement.

Cpl. Joe Shanley is known among students for his friendly disposition and genuine concern for their well-being.

He’s physically imposing and powerfully built at well over six feet tall. Add to that the uniform and gun, and Cpl. Joe Shanley of Syracuse University’s Department of Public Safety can come across as an intimidating figure.

Until he opens his mouth, that is.
