Daryl Green has been selected to serve as the new Associate Vice President of Public Safety and Chief of Police at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Green has served as the Chief of Staff of Michigan State University Police and Public Safety for the past year, following his retirement as Chief of the Lansing Police Department

Green has more than 25 years of experience in law enforcement, military, and emergency response training. In his new role, he will oversee UAB Police and Public Safety’s team of 204 law enforcement, security, and emergency management personnel. He will also oversee department financial activities while continuously connecting with the community locally and statewide.

As chief of Police, Green was commended by the governor of Michigan and the City of Lansing for developing critical policies, training and transparency reforms in law enforcement. Green led the police patrol responses for two hospitals and served as the incident commander for multiple large-scale events. Throughout his career, Green has partnered with area universities and colleges relating to student safety.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham has 26,000 employees and 25,000 students, including housing the 8th largest hospital system in the country. Green will manage and direct the department’s diverse team of 204 operational, law enforcement, security and emergency management personnel; oversee financial activities while building and strengthening an urban campus police and public security department that is collaborative and engaged throughout the entire organization; and be an active representative of the institution in the community and state.

“UAB is a respected leader in public safety in the heart of Birmingham, and I look forward to joining the team in the next era of delivering on UAB’s high standard of safety,” Green said. “It will be an honor to support UAB’s students, faculty and staff, providing an environment in which their important, transformational work takes place, as well as serving the alums, patients, fans, patrons of the arts and other valued members of the UAB community.”
