Frank Bourgeois named Chief of Police
Bentley University has named Frank Bourgeois chief of University Police. As acting chief since July, Frank has been instrumental in leading University Police’s efforts to keep campus safe and in compliance with COVID-19 policies this fall. He also oversaw the completion of de-escalation and implicit bias training for all of the department’s sworn officers as part of University Police’s commitment to racial justice, equity and inclusion.
Frank joined Bentley in 2018 as captain, after a distinguished career in law enforcement and higher education. For 20 years, he served as a lieutenant of the Nashua, N.H. police department before being appointed deputy chief of special operations for the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office. Following his time in law enforcement, Frank worked in residential safety and housing operations at Northeastern University. He holds a BS in Business Management from Suffolk University and an MBA from Rivier University.
As the head of University Police at Bentley, Frank will oversee a department of 30 sergeants, officers and dispatchers who work around the clock to keep the Bentley community safe.
"University Police has a proud tradition of engagement with our students, faculty and staff," said Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Andrew Shepardson. "I know those strong ties built on trust, respect and teamwork will continue under Chief Bourgeois’ leadership."
