Following a national search, Chief of Staff Daryl Green has been selected to serve as the new Associate Vice President of Public Safety and Chief of Police at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Green has served as the Chief of Staff of Michigan State University Police and Public Safety for the past year, following his retirement as Chief of the Lansing Police Department.

“It has been an honor to graduate from MSU and further serve as a member of the Department of Police and Public Safety. I have built so many great friendships and partnerships with people throughout the Lansing region and will miss them more than anything. It is truly the community that makes MSU and the Lansing region such a great place to receive an education, reside and work,” said Green.

Green has more than 25 years of experience in law enforcement, military, and emergency response training. In his new role, he will oversee UAB Police and Public Safety’s team of 204 law enforcement, security, and emergency management personnel. He will also oversee department financial activities while continuously connecting with the community locally and statewide.

“We are excited for Chief of Staff Green’s new opportunity and are thankful for his service to Michigan State University. Throughout the past year, he has assisted our department in evolving and enhancing positive community relationships. We wish him the best in his new role,” said MSU Vice President for Public Safety and Chief of Police Marlon Lynch.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham has 26,000 employees and 25,000 students, including housing the 8th largest hospital system in the country.

“I have a great team in place at UAB Police and Public Safety and look forward to learning more about their police and public safety systems. I also look forward to meeting my new community and understanding how I can positively impact public safety in the Birmingham area,” said Green.

Green’s last day at MSU DPPS is July 26. He will begin his new role Aug. 1.
