Aaron L. Graves

Aaron Graves has served in the field of law enforcement and security for 38 years.  He is the former Associate Vice President of Campus Safety and Security for Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.  At Duke, he led nearly two hundred sworn, proprietary security and contract security officers who were responsible for law enforcement and physical security for Duke University, Duke Medical Center and the Duke University Health System.  During his tenure he was instrumental in enhancing police community relations within the campus community as well as fostering collaborative efforts with local law enforcement.  His expertise in emergency planning and management was vital in the continued development of plans and training exercises for the university community.  Aaron resigned from his position in June of 2010 to pursue other interests in campus public safety. This assignment was one of several key leadership positions he has held in campus public safety during the past 18 years after retiring as a Captain from the United States Air Force Security Police.

Prior to serving at Duke, Aaron was the Executive Director/Chief of Public Safety for the University of Southern California, in Los Angeles which is one of the largest university public safety organizations in the nation.  During his three year tenure at USC, crime impacting the university community was reduced by 26% through strategic initiatives and community support.  He led major upgrades in technology, staffing and facilities to enhance the overall professionalism of the organization.  This greater sense of professionalism was a key factor in improving the relationship with the Los Angeles Police Department and their overall support to the university community.

He also led the Southern Methodist University Police Department as Chief of Police/Director of Parking for ten years in Dallas, Texas.  There he gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in managing operations for dignitary protection.  He oversaw campus visits of current and former United States Presidents, Royalty and other foreign heads of state.

Aaron served in various capacities in professional organizations representing the law enforcement community.  Most recently, he served as a Commissioner for the International Association for Campus Law Enforcement Administrators Accreditation Program and as a member of the Advisory Board for the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration.

He has held membership in the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE).  He has made numerous professional presentations including sessions at IACLEA and NOBLE on timely topics related to crisis management, leadership/supervision and crime control.

Aaron holds a Master of Liberal Arts from Texas Christian University and a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from North Carolina Wesleyan College.
