After elections were held this fall, campus police officer Barry Stauffer was formally introduced as president of the Pennsylvania Association of Campus Crime Prevention Practitioners (PACCPP) during a meeting at Dickinson College earlier this month.

Stauffer has been a member of PACCPP for 14 years. As president, he will coordinate the crime prevention efforts of the state’s colleges and universities. The prevention program used in Pennsylvania is the only one of its kind in the U.S., with other states beginning to show interest in adopting its guidelines.

“Ohio is the first state to approach us,” Stauffer says. “We focus on dorm safety, self-defense classes for women, and classes on campus safety and how to be safe while traveling abroad.”

Prior to working at Lafayette, Stauffer, who has been with the College for 20 years, was a police officer in Palmer Township and Wilson Borough. He says the most gratifying part of his job is the appreciation expressed by others.

“When students come up to you after a class and show their appreciation for making them more aware, or when someone says ‘Thank you, you helped me,’ that’s what is most rewarding,” he says.
