Deputy Chief of Police

The newly established Johns Hopkins Police Department (JHPD) is seeking two Deputy Chiefs of Police - one to oversee Operations and the other to oversee Support Services - to help build a police department that prioritizes the well-being of students, staff, faculty, and guests and embodies the University's mission by engaging the student community and other partners as co-creators of the campus safety environment.

America's first research university, Johns Hopkins University, continues to stand at the forefront of innovation and is renowned for its contributions across diverse fields, such as medicine, public health, engineering, and international relations. The Johns Hopkins University Police Department will be embracing the principles of 21st Century Policing; such as building on evidence-based best practices for community policing, building trust and legitimacy with all community partners, and focusing on officer wellness and safety. The JHPD will provide effective community-focused policing that is supportive of our students, faculty and staff who are all deeply committed to the pursuit of intellectual excellence in a safe, secure learning environment.

As direct reports to the Chief of Police, the pivotal Deputy Chief roles will be responsible for cultivating a partnership-first culture within a department with a forecasted staff of 100, leveraging their expertise to nurture relationships, foster inclusivity, and champion community-driven policing initiatives. The Deputy Chiefs will prioritize establishing transparency and legitimacy, which will be vital to JHPD's success and its collaboration with the community.

From the department's inception, these unique roles have the opportunity to shape the operational and strategic direction of police services across all three campuses - Homewood, Peabody, and East Baltimore, which includes The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and will be pivotal to the equitable delivery of community-oriented services.

The Deputy Chief positions offer an extraordinary opportunity to influence the future of campus safety and lead a staff dedicated to having a meaningful impact on our community. If you are a visionary leader with a passion for service, innovation and commitment to diversity, we invite you to bring your expertise to the Johns Hopkins University Police Department and help us shape the future of policing.

The JHPD has retained the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) to assist in the University in the selection process. For questions about this position, contact Antoinette Tull at or (804) 640-0323 or Rebecca Neuburger at or (202) 997-6287.

The positions will remain open until filled, with the first review of applicants on Thursday, April 11, 2024. Qualified and interested candidates who resonate with this vision and believe you can make a difference may apply with a cover letter, resume, and five references in confidence to:

Please be aware that our employment offer is contingent upon the successful completion of our pre-employment process, including criminal background, education, employment, and reference checks. This will require you and your references to answer questions regarding substantiated findings of serious misconduct.
