BOSTON UNIVERSITY
Boston, Massachusetts
Executive Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police



Boston University is seeking a collaborative and engaged leader for the position of Executive Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police.

Boston University, a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), is one of the leading private research and teaching institutions in the world, with two primary campuses in the heart of Boston. (The Charles River Campus is located in the Fenway-Kenmore Square neighborhood, and the Medical Campus is located in the South End neighborhood.) The University also has numerous programs around the globe.  Chartered in 1869, the University today enrolls more than 33,000 students, including 14,150 graduate and professional students, and it employs nearly 10,000 faculty and staff across 17 schools and colleges. The University comprises 133 acres with 322 buildings, 544 classrooms, 2,326 laboratories and houses 11,349 undergraduate students on the Charles River Campus. BU is the fourth largest private university in the United States and one of the Boston area’s largest employers.
The Executive Director of Public Safety is the Chief Administrative Officer for the Boston University Police Department as well as the public safety departments for the medical campus and the National Emerging Infectious Disease laboratory (NEIDL). The Executive Director of Public Safety is responsible for all matters of fiscal management, policy, operations and discipline. The Police Department has 54 sworn members, 16 professional staff, and a budget of $5.7 million. Public Safety Operations at the Medical Campus include 88 Public Safety Officers and a budget of over $10 million. 14 armed officers are assigned to the NEIDL, and that operation has a budget of over $2 million.
The Executive Director of Public Safety, who directly reports to the Vice President for Administrative Services, must have:
•    Superior interpersonal and communication skills, in order to build on good working relationships with police and public safety organizations within and outside the University community.
•    Experience and a passion for fostering and expanding critical interdepartmental relationships.
•    A service-oriented approach to the safety of the university community.
•    A track record of strategically managing complex operations.
•    Extensive urban policing experience and demonstrated competencies in best practices, effective leadership, and community policing.
•    A demonstrated capacity to serve as the public “face” of the department on campus and in the larger community, and to engage effectively with the community as well as with members of the department.
•    Extensive experience in budget management and labor relations.
•    A proven commitment to staff development, department-wide training, and diversity.


Experience with the unique policing needs of a campus environment is valuable but not required.


This position requires a University degree in a related field and a minimum of 8 years of progressively responsible law enforcement experience, including five years of supervisory or management experience. A graduate-level degree would be an asset, as would additional specialized leadership programs such as the Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP), FBI National Academy, or the Southern Police Institute.


Boston University provides a highly competitive salary plus an excellent benefits package, including life and health insurance, retirement, and tuition benefits.
The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) is assisting the university in the selection process.
