Two new members of the University Police Department leadership team, Major Derri Stormer and Capt. Joe Dixon, will be introduced at “Coffee with a Cop” Feb. 4 from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Reynolda Hall’s Green Room.
Both joined the department in January.
Stormer previously served on the police department at East Carolina University and Dixon was with the police department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
The event is hosted by Student Government, the Police Advisory Board and the Division of Campus Life.
The University Police Department in February will begin offering to the campus community the Citizen Police Academy Lunch & Learn series. The department has designed the 10-part series to offer students, faculty and staff a close-up view of the department and its officers.
Registration is available through the Professional Development Center.
Each session will be held in Reynolda Hall’s Heritage Room from 12 noon to 1 p.m. The series begins on Wednesday, Feb. 10, and will be held on a succession of Wednesdays (except for the week of Spring Break).
Several different members of the police department will participate and make presentations during the series, including Chief Regina Lawson and two new senior leaders in the department–Major Derri Stormer and Capt. Joe Dixon.
“The overall goal of the academy is to improve police and community interaction,” according to Sgt. Lesia Finney, the series’ coordinator. “Graduates will be able to share knowledge gained with others in the community, thereby helping others become more familiar with University Police.”
Topics to be presented include executive staff responsibilities, records and technology, administration/financial budget, rape aggression defense (RAD), community oriented policing, events/security, detectives division, communications 911 center/emergency manager, and patrol division.
Those who attend six of the 10 sessions will receive a graduation certificate.
While snacks will be served, attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
