U.Va. Police Chief Paul E. Norris Jr. Heads Back To Indiana

September 29, 2005 -- Paul. E. Norris Jr., who has served as chief of the University of Virginia Police Department since Aug. 1, 2001, has resigned his position, effective Oct. 25, to assume a similar position at the Indianapolis campus of Indiana University-Purdue University. Norris has a long history with Indiana University; he began his law-enforcement career there in 1970 and, prior to coming to U.Va., he had served as chief of police of IU’s Bloomington campus.

During his four years with the U.Va. Police Department, Norris “has consistently emphasized the importance of professional development for all uniformed officers and staff,” said Leonard W. Sandridge, U.Va.’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. “He has been steadfast in his advocacy for proper compensation for members of the department. Since Chief Norris’ arrival, he has encouraged individual officers to assume more responsibility for day-to-day decisions and operations in a way that has strengthened our department.”

A search will soon be under way for Norris’ replacement.
