September 6th, 2007 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, NH — The Chief of University Police at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn. has been named Plymouth State University’s next Police Chief. Creig W. Doyle will assume the post October 1, replacing John E. Clark, who left to become Chief of Police in Bristol, N.H.

Doyle is a veteran law enforcement professional, arriving at Carnegie Mellon in 2001 after serving 10 years as chief of police for the Rehoboth Beach Police Department in Delaware.

“We’re very happy to have Creig Doyle as our new Police Chief,” said PSU Vice President for Student Affairs Richard Hage. “We had a deep pool of applicants and Chief Doyle’s qualifications, experience and knowledge were very impressive.”

Doyle comes to PSU after a very successful track record at Carnegie Mellon, where the Police Department includes 24 police officers, 37 security guards, 11 shuttle escort drivers, five dispatchers and one administrative associate.

“Chief Doyle has made great contributions to the development of Carnegie Mellon Police Department with a focus on excellence, customer service and commitment to students,” said Carnegie Mellon Vice President Bill Elliot, who oversees campus security.

“Under Chief Doyle’s leadership with a lot of assistance from the entire department, the Carnegie Mellon Police Department was the first college or university in Pennsylvania to be accredited by the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association.”
