Lexipol Connect has awarded CSUMB’s University Police Department Gold-level status. Police Chief Earl Lawson explained that Lexipol Gold is focused on policy updates, acknowledgments, and training.
UPD has worked to keep policies up-to-date and collaborate with other CSU police departments systemwide, said Lawson. Part of UPD’s award-winning program includes Daily Training Bulletins which help keep the staff current on the latest policies and best practices.
Lawson credits a philosophy of continuous improvement and service, professionalism, and proficiency in implementing revised policies and best practices for his department achieving Gold-level recognition from Lexipol.
