Creig Doyle Former Rehoboth Beach Police Chief Named New Director of Campus Security

Creig William Doyle, former chief of police for the Rehoboth Beach Police Department in Delaware, has been named Carnegie Mellon's new director of campus security. He replaces Jim LaPaglia, who died in Aug. 2000. Lieutenant Mary Suber has served as the senior officer in charge for the past year.

Doyle brings more than 30 years of experience in all aspects of law enforcement to Carnegie Mellon, having served as a sergeant and lieutenant for the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., from 1970-91 and chief of police at Rehoboth Beach for the last 10 years. At Rehoboth Beach he directed a department that included 30 full-time and 37 part-time staff members.

"We're very glad to have someone of Creig's ability and experience on board," said Vice President for Enrollment William Elliott, who oversees the campus security department. "His varied police background, which includes working and educating young people at Rehoboth Beach for the last 10 years, his commitment to continuing professional development and his interpersonal skills are a great fit for this university."

Doyle was selected after an extensive national search by a 13-member committee of faculty and staff headed by Professor Richard Tucker, head of the Modern Languages Department.

Tucker said the final applicant pool of about 125 was exceptionally strong and that he was "awestruck by the range, strength and depth of the candidates." He said Doyle stood out because of his organization, resourcefulness, personality and work experiences in diverse communities.

"He found out a lot about Carnegie Mellon and really prepared himself for the interview and the assignment," Tucker said. "He's exceptionally personable. His background gave you a sense that he would fit in well here."

Tucker noted that before working at Rehoboth Beach, Doyle worked with college students at Howard University and Gallaudet University while on the police force in Washington, D.C.

Over the course of his career Doyle has earned many commendations from local government officials, citizen groups and charitable foundations. He is affiliated with many professional law enforcement associations including the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the FBI National Academy Associates in Maryland and Delaware, and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives.

"I'm absolutely thrilled and honored to have been given this opportunity to become a part of the Carnegie Mellon family," Doyle said. "I look forward to working with everyone at the university and providing quality police and security services to the campus community."

Doyle earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from The Catholic University of America in 1970. He received his police certification in 1971 at the Metropolitan Police Academy in Washington, D.C. In 1985, he graduated from the 141st session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va.
