Professor Patrick Malloy, senior lecturer at the University of New Haven in the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Science was the main point of contact with Sheriff David Clarke with regards to him speaking at UNH. Malloy released a statement earlier today explaining his exchange. According to MAlloy, he unintentionally relayed false information to the UNH administration about the accommodations Sheriff Clarke requested.

In collaboration with the Dean pf the college, the decision was made not to finalize these arrangements, due to the potential polarizing effect it may have on the campus community, especially during this presidential election.

Malloy expressed his sincere apologies to President Kaplan, the University community and Sheriff Clarke.

See the statement below:

“I would like to apologize and take responsibility for my actions that have compromised the University of New Haven and put the community in a difficult position with regard to my discussions with Sheriff David Clarke to speak at the University.

I approached Sheriff Clarke in June about speaking at the Markle Symposium. In the subsequent weeks, I exchanged multiple emails with his assistant about logistics. I was not completely accurate, though, with the information I shared with University officials. I indicated that Sheriff Clarke made a series of demands around his travel arrangements. I unintentionally misrepresented what the Sheriff asked for.

Ultimately, in collaboration with the dean of the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, we decided not to finalize his arrangements to visit campus when it was determined his appearance could potentially become politically polarizing in light of the imminent presidential election. My colleagues and I in the Lee College determined that this talk would be more appropriate for another time.

I realize that my actions put the University and its leadership at risk. I sincerely apologize to President Kaplan, the University community and Sheriff Clarke.”
