Brent Chambers, TJC director of public safety, has been named to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) subcommittee on campus safety.
Made up of administrators and law enforcement officials from colleges and universities across the state, the subcommittee will gather at the THECB headquarters in Austin later this week to discuss measures being taken to increase safety on Texas college campuses.
The subcommittee will discuss current state and federal statutes specific to safety at institutions of higher education, possible vulnerabilities and subsequent solutions to make them safer.
Chambers, a retired FBI special agent, joined TJC in late 2017.
Since 2010, he had served as supervisory senior resident agent for the East Texas resident agencies where he oversaw all FBI investigations and operations across 30 counties and offices including Lufkin, Texarkana and Tyler.
He was responsible for all operations, cases and 52 personnel, as well as the Safe Streets Task Force, the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and the Transnational Organized Crime Task Forces. He oversaw all high-profile kidnappings, extortions and other federal violent crime cases.
Since joining TJC, Chambers has begun working with area law enforcement and first responders to make TJC a training hub for area law enforcement and first responders.
