There have been several new faces around campus this year, including a new president, athletic director, and now police chief.
Tom Phillips will start the job Sept. 16th. Phillips has been deputy chief with the University of Chicago Police Department.
NIU President Doug Baker made the announcement Wednesday morning.
Phillips served in the Military Police Corps between 1987 and 1995 before moving to Chicago, where he briefly served as a special investigator for the City of Chicago’s Office of the Inspector General.
