HIGH POINT, N.C., April 19, 2010 ? The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators has selected Jeff Karpovich, CPP chief of security and director of transportation at High Point University, as the recipient of the 2010 Award for Administrative Excellence.
Karpovich will receive the award at the opening ceremonies at the association?s annual conference, to be held in St. Louis in June.
Nominated by Dr. Bobby Little, chair of the Criminal Justice Department at HPU, Karpovich received the award thanks to his outstanding efforts on campus. Recipients of the award are selected for their contribution to policy and planning, investigations and/or crime prevention, as well as new and innovative ideas, cost savings, enhanced administrative techniques, management ideas and more.

?Protection professionals are rarely afforded the latitude and resources to build a top-notch program, and I?m grateful to High Point University who has entrusted and supported me; HPU permitted me to create quality programs that promote student safety.
