UM Police Chief David A. Rivero Named Campus Safety Magazine’s 2007 Director of the Year!
The University of Miami’s own Chief of Police, David A. Rivero, has been named as Campus Safety magazine’s Director of the Year for 2007. Chief Rivero arrived at the University less than a year and a half ago with an impressive vision for the UM Police Department. With a new, recharged mission statement, Chief Rivero set out to make UMPD a national model for professionalism and community oriented policing. Boasting more than 50 free safety programs and services, impressive community reception to police, a roster of exceptionally trained, motivated and professional officers, impressive equipment and a dramatic increase in specialized operations and initiatives, Chief Rivero has clearly earned this prestigious nomination.
