Dr. Clarence Green, Northwest Missouri State University’s vice president of culture and chief of the University Police Department, recently participated in a panel discussion about strategies and tactics for improving law enforcement.

The session, titled “Enhancing Policing in the 21st Century,” was the first of an International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) series. The Sept. 24 discussion focused on trust, legitimacy and historical principles of policing. Other panelists included law enforcement leaders from the Scottish Courts and Tribunal System, University of Vermont, Coppin State University in Baltimore, Indiana State University and the University of Calgary in Canada. 

IACLEA’s more than 4,200 members represent more than 1,000 higher education institutions throughout the world.  

“I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to stand with giants in the field of law enforcement to offer pathways for success,” Green said. “There has never been a moment like this in the history of law enforcement, and it will take a collective effort of the community and law enforcement to reimagine how protection and service will be delivered.”

Green joined Northwest in 1996 and has served on numerous safety and law enforcement committees. Earlier this year, he also was one of 16 executives selected to the participate in the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program, a year-long executive leadership fellowship and study of how world-class U.S. organizations and senior leaders achieve strategic and operational excellence and stimulate innovation. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Northwest as well as several law enforcement and emergency management certifications. He recently completed his doctorate in educational leadership and policy analysis through Northwest’s cooperative doctorate program with the University of Missouri-Columbia.
