Welcome Letter from the Chief

On behalf of the men and women of the Central State University Police Department, welcome to campus. As your chief of police, I am honored to serve this community. I deeply appreciate the support and confidence that has been extended to me by the president, the members of cabinet and the university community. The CSU Police Department consists of state-certified police officers, and civilian employees who work in partnership with our entire community to prevent crime, solve problems, and improve quality of life on campus. Our department’s primary jurisdiction is the 630-acre campus, in Wilberforce Ohio, and Central State University West Campus in Dayton Ohio. The Central State University Police Department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year-round.

Community oriented policing is at the heart of our success here at Central State. The CSU Police Department is committed to building relationships with community members while providing the highest level of service to keep our citizens safe. Our community partnerships are established through the daily efforts of our officers and support staff to maintain the confidence of those we serve. Your safety, while at the university is the CSU Police Department’s primary concern.

The safety and security of the university is the combined responsibility of the entire Central State University community. It is our mindset, that safety is everyone’s responsibility in managing and minimizing potential crime. We all can play a role in ensuring Central State University is a safe campus to learn, live, work and play. If you see something, say something!

I consider it a privilege to work with the members of your Central State University Police Department. I have found them to be extremely professional, competent, and compassionate and ready to help. The men and women of the Central State University Police Department are firmly committed to providing our community with the highest level of police service while adhering to our core values. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
