Clemson University has announced that Jami Brothers has been named its new chief of police.
Brothers was chosen to fill the position after a nationwide search and will replace Eric Hendricks, who retired in December 2016. She will direct all of CUPD’s activities, including uniform patrol, investigations, education and outreach programs and victim assistance.
“Jami is well-prepared for the opportunity to serve as our chief of police,” vice president for student affairs Almeda Jacks said in a statement. “During her time at Clemson, she has consistently performed at the highest levels and has always held the safety and well-being of everyone on our campus in the highest regard. We look forward to Jami continuing her great work in this new role.”
Brothers joined CUPD in August 2007 as a patrol officer and was promoted to lieutenant in 2011. In August 2015, she promoted to captain of the department’s Operations Division, where she was responsible for the planning, direction, supervision and evaluation of all of CUPD’s operations. She was also a member of the university’s Behavioral Intervention Team.
“I’m thankful for this wonderful opportunity,” Brothers said in a statement. “I’m excited to continue to serve this university while working with local law enforcement and community partners in the newest chapter of my career.”
Before joining CUPD, Brothers worked for the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office from 1997 to 2007.
“In her 20-year career, Jami has extensive experience in all levels of law enforcement,” associate vice president for municipal services Johnson Link said in a statement. “She’s done everything we’ve asked her to do in her time at Clemson and her work has been exceptional. Jami has developed a great working relationship and trust by serving as a liaison with various entities across campus as well.”
Brothers holds a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Southern Wesleyan University and a Master of Science in criminology from Indiana State.
