In addition, the Coordinator administers the recruiting process for the department and interfaces with Command Staff to conduct various professional standards functions to include audits and inspections of administrative and operational efficiency. The lieutenant also provides additional training to personnel in an effort to expand the department’s knowledge on topics related to campus law enforcement.
