Pyramid Management Group owns 14 malls across the northeast, three of which have substations for local police, according to an investigation by NewsChannel 9.
Sangertown Square in New Hartford, Crossgates outside of Albany and Poughkeepsie Galleria have satellite offices for their local police officers who patrol the malls.
Conversations and meetings between Syracuse city leaders and Pyramid may result in a long-considered substation for Syracuse Police at the company’s biggest property, Destiny USA.
Conversations about putting a substation at Destiny USA have happened for years, but a gang-related shooting at the mall on Black Friday has pushed the mall to review its security.
Thursday, NewsChannel 9’s Andrew Donovan was first to report renewed conversations to put a substation inside the mall. Friday, both the Syracuse Mayor and Police Chief expressed willingness to consider a substation in addition to other security improvements.
