Gary M. Segrue of Lakewood has been appointed director of the Safety and Security Department at St. Bonaventure University, announced Rick Trietley, vice president of Student Affairs.
He will begin work at St. Bonaventure on July 13.
Segrue has been a member of the New York State Police since 1989, most recently as station commander at the State Police barracks in Jamestown. He’s been a sergeant since 1997, and previously served as an investigator with the Community Narcotics Enforcement Team from 1994 to 1997.
“We are extremely pleased that Gary is joining the SBU team as our new director of Safety and Security. His 26 years of law enforcement experience with the New York State Police will be invaluable to our continued efforts to maintain a safe and secure environment for our students and employees,” said Rick Trietley, vice president of Student Affairs.
“His leadership, investigative and administrative skill sets clearly set him apart from the other very highly qualified candidates in the search process.”
Segrue has served as an adjunct instructor for the last nine years at Jamestown Community College, and logged nearly 500 hours as a special topics instructor with the State Police from 1992 to 1997.
Segrue was named the 2015 Non-Commissioned Officer Supervisor of the Year at the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association Awards Dinner on June 3 in New York City.
“Ensuring the safety and security of the St. Bonaventure community is both a great challenge and great honor,” Segrue said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the mission of St. Bonaventure University.”
Segrue received bachelor’s (1992) and master’s (2009) degrees in criminal justice from the University at Albany. He’s also completed more than 50 post-academy training programs with the State Police, as well as seven federal law enforcement programs with the FBI, FEMA and the Department of Justice.
Segrue and his wife, Nichole, have three children.
“I would also like to offer my sincere gratitude and appreciation to the search committee, led by chair Nichole Gonzalez, for a job well done,” Trietley said.
