Stephen Van Andel
Patrol Sergeant

I have worked in the field of public safety for over nine years. I started out working as a P.O.S.T Certified Public Safety Dispatcher at Chapman University in 2007 and was the first member of Public Safety to receive the Employee of the Semester award. I also worked as an operations manager for St. George Logistics where I oversaw daily operations and commanded a team of dispatchers, customer service representatives, and truckers. In 2017 I left St. George to follow my passion for public safety and became a member of Soka University of America’s Public Safety Department. Over the past years of experience, I have honed my skills in investigations, surveillance, system administration, public relations, crime prevention, federal compliance, and leadership. I am a member of the National Association of Clery Compliance Officers or NACCOP.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
