This year’s Award for Innovations in Community Oriented Policing was presented to Officer Chad Gleissl of the York College Department of Campus Safety Police.

In 2021-2022, under the direction of Officer Gleissl, the York College Department of Campus Safety Police conducted a record number of community policing programs, increased the quality of those programs and student participation, and brought the department and campus community together.

Among these initiatives are the Pink Patch Program for Breast Cancer Awareness Month that raised several thousand dollars for a local hospital's cancer research and patient support efforts, a “Lawn Games with Campus Safety” program in partnership with Residence Life and coordinating with a local pharmacy to organize a prescription drug take back program.

Officer Gleissl’s leadership enabled the York College Department of Campus Safety Police to collaboratively conduct a record number of high-quality community policing programs that saw exceptional student participation, and which brought the department and campus community together.
