Karen Tempinski, Director of Public Safety and Police Operations and Chief of Police, has decided to accept an offer to pursue a career with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office. I thank Karen for her dedication and excellent service to DeSales University over the past nine years, specifically in leading the Department of Public Safety and Police Operations as Chief of Police during the last year.
I am pleased to announce that Officer Michael Pochron has agreed to serve as Acting Director of Public Safety and Police Operations and Chief of Police as the University initiates a search to appoint a new Director and Chief of Police.
Prior to joining the Department of Public Safety and Police Operations as an officer and parking authority supervisor four years ago, Mike served a 30 year career with the Salisbury Township Police Department, retiring at the rank of Sergeant. I thank Mike for agreeing to serve a greater role in maintaining the safety and security of the campus community and appreciate his ongoing dedication to the University.
Please congratulate Karen on her new opportunity and support Mike in his expanded leadership role with the University.
