Laury Flint has been serving as interim police chief since March.

The woman who has been serving as the interim Indiana University Police Department chief has been named to the position permanently.

Laury Flint became interim chief after then-police chief Keith Cash died unexpectedly of a heart condition.

“We are extremely fortunate to have a person like Laury ready to step into a position so critical to the safety of the IUB campus,” Indiana University Director of Public Safety Jerry Minger said. “Her record of exemplary service, leadership and initiative matched with superior organizational skills makes her an excellent choice to oversee campus police services.”

Flint began her career as a student in the IU Police Academy in 1980. On the Bloomington campus, she has worked as a patrol officer, uniform sergeant, uniform lieutenant and deputy chief of police.

“I like the atmosphere at Indiana University,” she said. “Over the years I have been fortunate to develop good relationships with students, faculty and staff, which will help me manage the IU Police with their needs and concerns in mind.”

Flint graduated from the IU Police Academy in 1981 and later from IU Bloomington with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. She is also a 2007 graduate of the FBI National Academy.
