Bradd Brown will no longer be chief of police.
Brown tendered his resignation because of “personal reasons” but will continue as chief through Dec. 31.
President Robert Henry announced the resignation in a Nov. 8 email to the campus community, writing that Brown has “provided exceptional leadership to the OCUPD and the university.” Brown was appointed chief of police in 2014.
During his tenure, Brown
- implemented software to facilitate better tracking and reporting for Clery Act compliance,
- revised the emergency operations plan,
- worked with Oklahoma City police to conduct joint emergency preparedness exercises, and
- oversaw the department’s move to its current location, according to Henry.
“I am using this time of transition as an opportunity to realign the reporting structure for the OCUPD. It is important to me that the OCUPD has the appropriate cabinet-level leadership support,” Henry wrote.
Joey Croslin’s title will now be vice president for human resources. She was also appointed to be the OCUPD supervisor and to lead the search for the next chief of police, according to Henry’s email.
“I am confident that Ms. Croslin will serve the department well and keep me advised of ways that I may be supportive of department priorities,” he wrote.
