ECU'S New Police Chief On The Job

There's a new top cop on the campus of East Carolina University.

Chief Gerald Lewis just started with the campus police department.

He came to Greenville from New Jersey where he spent 26-years in a variety of roles with the New Jersey State Police, before retiring in December.

Lewis says getting to know the campus and Greenville community, as well as establishing relationships with neighboring law enforcement agencies, are among his top priorities.

The chief says it's most important for him to make students, staff and visitors feel like the campus is a safe and comfortable environment.

Chief Lewis started on Tuesday.
