Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police
Cincinnati State Technical & Community College
Currently serves as Chief of Police/Director of Public Safety at Cincinnati State College, with previous work experience in campus law enforcement, local law enforcement, and corporate security, as well as assignments in Iraq. Michael’s career of over 25 years in public safety has provided him with a wide array of knowledge and experience, serving over 16 years with an agency that was one of only two fully integrated cross functional police/fire departments in Ohio. This brought him a depth of experience in not only police work but also in emergency response. As the Accreditation Manager, in compliance with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) he developed policy and procedures that enabled this police/fire department to become an accredited agency in record time. Taking every opportunity to advance his skills and training, he was able to transition into other rewarding positions that expanded his capabilities. He is credentialed as a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) and Professional Certified Investigator (PCI) with ASIS International, Personal Protection Specialist (PPS) thru the Executive Protection Institute (EPI) as well as serving as an instructor for EPI. He is a member of FBI Squad 10 (JTTF) Joint Terrorism Task Force Executive Committee, ASIS International Critical Infrastructure Working Group (CIWG), and Vice Chair of ASIS Fire and Life Safety Council.
He has extensive experience in procuring and utilizing surveillance systems, access control, fire and life safety systems, along with emergency planning and response. In his current position he was able to facilitate integration of a security solution inclusive of virtual tours of interior space, live cameras, and interactive building blue prints which involve all facility systems (water, gas, HVAC, etc). This security solution is part of the featured article in the July issue of Security Management Magazine. He is currently serving his 5th term as President of the Ohio Campus Law Enforcement Association. His philosophy of “cooperation by inclusion” encompasses all aspects of his professional career.
