Lt. David Sweeney has been with the university since March 2021, following a 34-year career in policing in the Seattle, WA area. He earned his BA in Law, Society and Justice from the University of Washington and is a graduate of The School of Police Staffing and Command at Northwestern University. He is currently working toward his Master of Public Policy degree at OSU. Coming to OSU feels like returning to his roots, since one of his first jobs was as security officer at Seattle-Pacific University for four years. David enjoys working in a university setting because OSU officers focus on creating a peaceful, protected environment for the community, not just identifying law-breakers. Even though he comes from Seattle and has been in law enforcement for quite a long time, David has never tried coffee!
