Jef Rice Announced As University Police Department Director
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue my work with USD as the director of the Police Department,” Rice said.
“Jef brings a great deal of experience in law enforcement and is very familiar with our campus,” said Adam Rosheim, vice president of finance and administration at USD. “I look forward to Jef leading the department and continuing to work collaboratively with the campus, the Vermillion Police Department and other community departments.”
As director, Rice plans to keep UPD involved in safety and security opportunities, and he also wants to continue to offer ALiCE (active shooter training) to faculty, staff and students.
“I enjoy working with the different departments to make the campus community safe and a great place of education,” said Rice.
Having moved to South Dakota in the early 1970s, Rice considers himself a South Dakota native. He spent most of his law enforcement career in the Rapid City-Pennington County area.
