As UCF Police Chief Richard Beary prepares to retire after 11 years at UCF and 41 years of law enforcement service, UCF is conducting a comprehensive, transparent search for a new campus safety leader.
Four UCF Police chief finalists will be on campus this month to meet with students, faculty and staff members, and other partners. Each candidate also will give a presentation about campus safety at an open forum.
The forums will include a presentation by the candidates and questions from the audience. The campus community and public are invited to attend the hour-long sessions.
More information on the finalists, including forum times and survey links to provide feedback for each candidate, can be found below. Surveys for each candidate’s visit must be completed by noon the day after his or her open forum.
