Village of Misenheimer Police chief to lead

Law enforcement officials from campuses across the state will learn firsthand some of the emergency preparedness initiatives Pfeiffer University has implemented during the 2008 summer conference of the N.C. Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.
Tracey Wyrick, police chief of the Village of Misenheimer Police Department, which also serves as the official public safety and law enforcement agency for Pfeiffer, has been invited to lead a session titled “Challenges of Emergency Preparedness” during the Aug. 6-8 conference in Asheville. The association comprises representatives from approximately 40 public and private colleges and universities throughout North Carolina.
Conference presenters were selected as a result of their demonstrated leadership and innovation in the improvement of emergency preparedness plans. In addition to Wyrick, other session leaders will include Wendell Flinchum, police chief at Virginia Tech; Gunther Doerr, police chief at Appalachian State University; and Steve Gregory, director of public safety at Wake Technical College. Representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation will also present.
A Salisbury native and Stanly County resident for 21 years, Wyrick has been active during the past year on the N.C. Attorney General’s Task Force on Campus Safety, specifically in the area of emergency preparedness and student safety orientation. He began his career with the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office in 1989.
A proponent of education and training, his career led him to serve as director of Basic Law Enforcement Training at Stanly Community College, where he continues to teach criminal law. In 2001, he became chief of the Misenheimer Police Department and Pfeiffer, and was instrumental in forming the department.
He earned a degree in criminal justice and a master of business administration degree at Pfeiffer. He obtained the advanced professional certificate from the N.C. Sheriff’s Education and Training Standards Division and is a graduate of the N.C. Criminal Investigator’s Academy and Leadership Stanly.
