Fall Commendation Ceremony Celebrated Partnerships and Collaboration

The Division of Public Safety (DPS) honored members of the division and our partners in safety on November 11, 2015 at the Division of Public Safety Commendation Ceremony. The ceremony opened with a moving invocation by the University Chaplain, Chaz Howard. The ceremony included a special recognition for DPS veterans and all who have served this country in the military. The ceremony also featured the swearing-in of five new officers joining the University of Pennsylvania Police Department.

The ceremony highlighted the impact of teamwork across the division and with our safety partners and community members. The event was closed with kind words of peace and safety from Chaplain Howard.
