Staff Changes


Deputy Chief of Investigations

Deputy Chief of Investigations Tom King is resigning at the end of this month. Mr. King has accepted a new position as the Director of Safety and Security for Haverford College. "Clearly, this is a wonderful opportunity for Tom. Haverford is indeed lucky to attract someone of Tom's experience, expertise and commitment. It is also a compliment to our organization that corporations and other Universities look to DPS/UPPD for the brightest and best candidates," said Acting Chief of Police Maureen Rush.

Mr. King has been with DPS since August 1997. His first assignment with the UPPD Detective Unit was Detective Commander. "Tom built a wonderful team of dedicated detectives and broadened the scope of the Detective Unit/Records Department," said Chief Rush. In February 1999 he was promoted to Deputy Chief of Investigations.

Detective Supervisor William Danks will serve as acting deputy chief until a search committee selects a permanent replacement.
