Leadership


Meet Our Team

Emory Police Department’s leadership team is committed to fostering a safe and inclusive campus for everyone. 

"The death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer sparked a national movement towards community policing. Our Emory University Police Department is committed to redefining what it means to serve, protect, and lead by example—creating a safe and inclusive campus for everyone. We embrace our responsibility to exercise procedural justice in our community and with each other."
