Governors State University
Police Department

Message from the Chief

I am a law enforcement agent committed to the protection of individual human rights.

I value the fair, compassionate, and ethical treatment of all diverse groups.

I expect my officers to:

be leaders and lead by example;
nurture the public trust and demonstrate a reflection of professionalism; and
have high standards, perform at a high level, and show superb ethics while utilizing creative problem-solving techniques in conjunction with the university and the wider community.

I believe in involving everyone in the process and allowing each department member full ownership of the organizational goals.

I believe in enhancing the quality of the educational and community experience by developing safety programs and being the best leader possible for the good of the department, Governors State University, and the community.

Chief Debra Boyd
