College publicizes Eve Stephens as new UTPD Chief

The College introduced Eve Stephens as the brand new chief of the UT Police Division and the Assistant Vice President of Campus Safety. Stephens will formally start her function on July 5. 

Stephens’ appointment comes after former UTPD Chief David Carter handed away on April 22, 2022, at 64, following an extended battle with most cancers. 

Stephens has served the Austin neighborhood in legislation enforcement for nearly 24 years. In 2021, Stephens was promoted to Commander of the Austin Police Division. She created APD’s first Ladies’s Mentorship Program for feminine cadets and helped type a state-level feminine officer mentorship program for the Texas Police Chiefs Affiliation.

In an e-mail from the College, a consultant stated, “I’m assured that Chief Stephens will lead our campus safety to larger power within the coming years with integrity and with a spirit that nothing is inconceivable.”
