A Word From Our Chief


While developing a relationship of mutual trust and respect with our students, faculty, staff, and community, we have adopted a mission that is committed to treating all people fairly while supporting an environment where diverse social, cultural, and academic values are allowed to develop. As Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief of Police for Vanderbilt University, I am proud of our state certified police officers, community service officers, and support staff, who have demonstrated a personal commitment to providing a professional and effective service oriented law enforcement agency. I welcome your comments and suggestions. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
