Lewis University Police Department
A Message from the Chief

The Lewis University Police Department supports students in their academic and personal journeys through a model of community policing focused on student development. Our numerous educational programs, interactive activities and approach to behavioral interventions are meant to foster a relationship with the Flyer community built on trust and collaboration. Our team of public safety professionals has specialized training in numerous areas relevant to supporting a diverse campus of learners.

As a University alum, a Flyer dad and the Chief of police, I am personally invested in our students’ success. It is my expectation that our officers conduct themselves with the highest level of professionalism and humanity, while demonstrating their respect for the individual dignity of each of our community members. I encourage students, parents, faculty or staff to stop in with a question, compliment or complaint any time. The coffee maker’s always on and the door’s always open.

Chief of Police
