You’ve Earned Some Extra Credit
Ever think your work or the work of someone you know deserves recognition? The wait is over. Introducing the Campus Safety Director of the Year Award!
As campus security administrators and police chiefs, there are times when praise for your accomplishments can be scarce. But all of us at Campus Safety know that you are doing a lot right when it comes to keeping our nation’s students, patients, faculty and employees safe and secure.
For example, in just one week this past December, two potential tragedies – a bombing and Columbine-type massacre – were prevented because of quick work by school district officials and police. In November, Clarendon Memorial Hospital in Manning, S.C., thwarted a baby-snatching attempt. Not to be outdone, the University of Alabama, Birmingham, recently reduced its pedestrian vs. auto accidents by 84 percent.
To express our appreciation for high-achievers like these, I’m proud to introduce Campus Safety magazine’s Campus Safety Director of the Year program.
I’ll bet each of you knows a hospital, university or school campus police chief or director of public safety and security who goes above and beyond the call of duty, demonstrating outstanding leadership skills, ingenuity, selflessness and overall achievement.
He or she is the one who implements initiatives that deliver results; overcomes enormous obstacles to achieve success; seamlessly employs technological solutions; or, despite slashed budgets and limited resources, is able to do more with less. You know who these professionals are, and you may even be one of them. Campus Safety magazine wants to hear about you and your talented colleagues.
Some other examples of outstanding achievement and performance might include:
If you know of a campus chief of police or public safety and security director whose work has resulted in successes like these, we invite you to submit his or her (or your) nomination for this prestigious award.
The Campus Safety Director of the Year winner(s) will receive a custom plaque and special editorial coverage and photos in an upcoming issue of Campus Safety magazine.
Complete information on this program, as well as the entry form, can be found online at www.CampusSafetyMazagine.com/DirectorOfTheYear. All entries must be received by Nov. 1. There is no cost to submit a nomination.
This is a great opportunity for outstanding campus safety and security professionals to receive the recognition they deserve. Help us make that happen.
