CSU Says Thank You To Campus Police Department

President Berkman, Chairman Moreno highlight officers’ tireless work during the RNC

The tireless efforts of the Cleveland State University Police Department to keep the CSU campus safe were recently recognized by President Ronald M. Berkman and Chairman of the Board of Trustees Bernie Moreno.

Dr. Berkman and Chairman Moreno hosted a luncheon for CSU’s security team in appreciation of its hard work during the Republican National Convention and throughout the school year. They praised the police department’s commitment to excellence, and stressed their appreciation for keeping the CSU community safe as several large demonstrations marched through the campus without incident during the RNC.

During the convention the CSU Police Department provided round-the-clock law enforcement not only for the campus community, but also for 600 Ohio State Troopers who stayed in Cleveland State’s residence halls. As a token of their gratitude, Dr. Berkman and Chairman Moreno presented the officers with a limited-edition medallion from the Cleveland Police Foundation commemorating their outstanding teamwork during the RNC.

Dr. Berkman also congratulated Chief of Police Gary Lewis and his officers for recently receiving national accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. Fewer than 70 colleges and universities across the United States have received the CALEA accreditation, and CSU is one of only four in Ohio.
