Morris Named 2018 NACSA's Non-Sworn Chief of the Year

Chief Rick Lee Morris of the North Greenville University Campus Security Department has been named this year’s National Association of Campus Safety Administrators Chief of the year in the non-sworn category.

Morris is a graduate of the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, graduating second in his class in 1993. He is a member of the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, National Association of Chiefs of Police, National Sheriffs’ Association, South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association and National Association of Campus Safety Administrators. He is also a certified Glock Armorer and twice received a successful completion certificate from Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

When Chief Morris began working for the university, the department consisted of just three staff members, including Morris. Now the department is an armed para-law enforcement agency, offering 24 hours a day, seven days a week on-duty service, protection and law enforcement. The agency employs thirteen full-time officers, most with specialized skills including one K-9 officer with a certified police detector dog, a full time certified training officer, and seven work study students that assist with various functions.

He has lived a life of public service, starting out as an emergency dispatcher and volunteer fire fighter to chief of campus security. His leadership has brought NGU Office of Campus Security from a small turnkey operation to a full service proprietary law enforcement agency.

NACSA says in the performance of doing his duty for the university, Chief Morris has kept his priorities balanced, never forgetting his duty, but including his faith, family and friends. “For these reasons and for his dedication to public safety in higher education, Chief Rick Morris has been named as this year’s NACSA Non-Sworn Chief of the year.”
