MC campus police officer promoted
Marietta College's James Weaver III, who has served the campus as a police officer for 2 1/2 years, was recently promoted from officer to shift sergeant. His new duties began in late November.
He has attended numerous specialized training sessions covering topics such as sexual assault.
Weaver recently attended a 40-hour advanced training course to become certified as a Core Criminal Investigator through the Ohio Peace Officers Training Commission. He is also a certified Terrorism Liaison Officer (TLO) through the Ohio Department of Homeland Security. This certification has allowed the Marietta College Police Department to receive federal equipment, including two laptops, a projector and a license plate reader, over the past two months. This equipment is valued at more than $30,000.
"This new equipment is a big help with our proactive approach to the safety of our students, faculty, and staff," Weaver said.
