George Boksan '78 Named Director of Campus Safety and Police

Bethlehem, Pa., November 1, 2010--Moravian College recently named George J. Boksan as its director of campus safety and police. Boksan, an alumnus of the College, will begin his position on November 1, 2010.

Boksan has served as captain of police with the Bethlehem Township Police Department (BTPD) since 2003, where he has been responsible for significant supervisory and administrative duties, including the preparation and implementation of policies, procedures, and budgets. He oversees police operations for crimes, emergencies, and other incidents.

He has served a variety of positions with increasing responsibility over his 30 years with the BTPD. He has worked as a detective for 17 years, a field supervisor with the Northampton County Drug Task Force for 4 years, and police captain for 8 years. Boksan earned a B.A. degree in criminal justice administration from Moravian College in 1978. He is certified in both Act 120 Recruit Training and Act 235 Lethal Weapons Training.

The Moravian College Department of Campus Safety is responsible for maintaining a safe and pleasant environment in which to live, work, and learn. Within the Campus Safety Department is the Campus Police force. The Campus Police are charged with the responsibility of protecting life and property, preventing and detecting crime on campus, and providing essential safety services to the College community. The services provided by the department eliminate the necessity of depending upon outside agencies for public safety services, but the Department of Campus Safety works closely with the area law enforcement agencies and fire departments.

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
