Congratulations to Ellis Security and Safety Team Members

Congratulations to Senior Officer Ronald Raines, Officer Michael Walker and Officer Nathaniel Burriss!
They are the first three Ellis Security and Safety Officers to complete the Campus Protection Officer Certification here at Ellis Library. Thanks for taking the time and effort to get this done. Keep up the good work and making Ellis Library safer for our staff and patrons. We are having all our officers complete this course regardless of part-time or full-time status or work experience. Knowledge is always the best first tool in crime prevention. Hopefully soon I will be able to give a better acknowledgement for this achievement. We’re looking to issuing award bars for completion of the course along with First Aid, CPR and AED Certification.

This course is intended to be an introduction to the campus safety profession and is an excellent course for newly hired officers but can also serve as a refresher course for seasoned officers. This Corse covers topics in Tactical Communication, Active Shooter Initial Assessment, Run, Hide Fight, S.A.F.E., CLERY,-Campus Security Authorities (“CSA”) are designated university employees who are required to disclose and report on-campus incidents of which they become aware, How to Identify Crime Risk Areas, What is FERPA?, Mindset in Policing, Community Policing.

This is a certification course, so many of the sections will have a test at the end.

Any questions about this course or the Ellis Security and Safety team can be directed to Sr Officer Larry Dietzel Phone 573-882-3240 or Email Dietzell@umsystem.edu
