Dr. Clarence Green, Northwest Missouri State University’s vice president of culture and chief of the University Police Department, served as a panelist for a Jan. 12 webinar to discuss community policing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Green joined a three-person panel of university police chiefs to discuss strategies they use to engage their communities, such as prevention-based programming and crime prevention design.

“A lot of great things have happened as far as connecting with the community through social media,” Green said of Northwest’s policing strategies. “Officers have done a great job by providing preventative patrols, responding to calls, issuing tons of information through social media platforms and networks and deploying pocket group meetings with students, faculty and staff.”

The conference was sponsored by the Collaborative Reform Initiative Technical Assistance Center (CRI-TAC) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).

The IACP, founded in 1893, is a recognized leader in global policing and committed to advancing safer communities through thoughtful, progressive police leadership. The association serves communities worldwide on behalf of law enforcement while advancing leadership and professionalism in policing worldwide.

Green joined Northwest in 1996 and has served on numerous safety and law enforcement committees. Last year, he was one of 16 executives selected to 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 earned his doctorate in educational leadership and policy analysis through Northwest’s cooperative doctorate program with the University of Missouri-Columbia.
