RU PD recognizes life-saving officers

The Radford University Police Department (RUPD) will receive official documentation of its successful reaccreditation assessment on Wednesday, April 22, at 11 a.m. in the RU Board of Visitors conference room in a presentation ceremony that will feature President Penelope W. Kyle and RUPD Chief Colleen T. Roberts.
The RUPD was the first university police department in Virginia to achieve VLEPSC accreditation in October 2000 and earned its first reaccreditation in November 2004.
The ceremony will also feature presentation of the inaugural Radford University Recognition of Valor and Heroic Acts award to two university officers, Brad Bolen and James Belcher, who were instrumental in the successful recent rescue of an RU student. On March 25, a student believed to be under the influence of narcotics jumped out a 13th floor window of Muse Hall. Several students grabbed her by the ankles and held her until Bolen and Belcher arrived within minutes and pulled her back inside to safety.
“The reaccreditation recognition and the individual awards reflect the professionalism and dedication of the department that serves the Radford University community,” said Chief Colleen Roberts.
The ceremony will mark the second consecutive successful reaccreditation of the RUPD by the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC.) The department was scrutinized on 180 professional standards in the four general areas of administration, operations, personnel and training. The review process included a VLEPSC inspection of the department’s facilities, vehicles and equipment, interviews with department personnel and a review of the department’s Standard Operating Procedures manual, which was followed by a reaccreditation review before the VLEPSC executive board, comprised of 10 sitting sheriffs and police chiefs.
