"University policing is a dynamic career and we're looking forward to finding the right individuals for this opportunity."

Chief Jeff Newton says working for the university as a police chief is a great job, and those who start working there usually stay until retirement.

"We try to have a really positive work environment here at the University. [We are looking for] someone that can be a balanced officer for us. Someone who can go out there and solve a crime, and at the same time provide the campus community with education and programming," said Newton

Interested candidates are asked to submit an electronic application by April 16. Candidates who meet minimum qualifications will be contacted with testing information.
 
Finalists must successfully pass physical fitness, psychological and polygraph exams, as well as written and oral testing, and a thorough background investigation, to be considered for the position.

    In April, Williams Baptist cross country runner Alex Van Herpen competed in the prestigious Boston Marathon. An incredible feat. Learning about his path to get there, it stopped me in my tracks.
