CHESTER, Penn. — Congratulations to Widener University Executive Director of Campus Safety Anthony Pluretti for being named one of this year’s higher education Campus Safety Director of the Year finalists.

Here are some of his notable achievements:

  • Saved the university $400,000 per year by eliminating the school’s third-party security contract.
  • Improved officer morale by relaxing grooming standards, allowing officers to grow facial hair, show appropriate tattoos, change their hair color and allow female officers to wear their hair in a fashion that they preferred.
  • Re-wrote the annual security and fire safety report, digitized the daily crime and daily fire logs, created an interactive public online crime portal for Clery geography and crime monitoring, created more efficient methods of tracking crime statistics throughout the year, and educated staff members and student groups about the importance of the Clery Act.
