Ben Russell heads campus police department

By: samjack

Ben Russell is putting his 25-year law enforcement career to use in his new position as Lone Star College-Cy-Fairís police captain.

Russell said he enjoyed helping people for 25 years in patrol, special operations and undercover work with the Houston Police Department.

ďPolice work is 99 percent service,Ē said Russell in a news release. ďIíd tell people Iím not on the police force; Iím in the police service.Ē

After retiring in 2002 with some 126 commendations earned during his HPD career and spending a brief three years in retirement, Russell returned to service in 2005 in the education arena. He joined the Lone Star College-Tomball Police Department and was promoted to Corporal six-months before joining the LSC-Cy-Fair Police Department with a promotion to captain in April.

From Houstonís city streets to LSC-Cy-Fairís campus sidewalks, Russellís focus is still helping people and, in particular, on safety.

ďI want to make this a very safe campus and for people to perceive that itís safe because it is safe,Ē said Russell.

In education, police service includes handling domestic disputes, irate students and jealousy issues among students and any student and staff safety concerns as well as emergency planning in case of disasters, he said.

Among his department goals for both LSC-Cy-Fair and LSC-Fairbanks Center are immediate response; high visibility outside and inside as well as a structured lunch program so officers are always on site; and to quickly identify any possible threats. He will use his HPD experience to make the campus and satellite center safer.

Under Russellís command, officers patrol the campus in police cars or security golf carts, on bicycle and on foot. In addition, an officer is physically at the police departmentís desk covering the phones 24 hours a day, he said. Officers are also undergoing active shooter, tactical training in preparation of any serious campus situations.

This spring, the department provided training for the Safewalk Program. This service provides students, employees and visitors an escort safely to their vehicle or any campus destination. This summer, all classrooms should have emergency phones that when the receiver is picked up, the campus police, at ext. 5911, is automatically dialed. This fall, college police departments across the Lone Star College System will have new police radios, communication with outside law enforcement agencies and there will be dispatchers at the system office.

Russell said that while he reports to the systemís Police Chief Richard Gregory, he will still work with and consult with administration on campus.

ďI encourage everyone if they have concerns about safety or even complaints to let me know,Ē said Russell. ďI have an open-door policy for staff, faculty and students.Ē

His office is located at Public Safety Department office in the College Center, room 113.
