Three questions with… Bruce Beckett

Bruce Beckett

Bruce Beckett is an inspector in Campus Security. He retired from the Niagara Regional Police as a sergeant in 2005 after a 33-year career as a police officer. He has been working at Brock ever since. He’s a lifelong resident of St. Catharines and has been married to Suzanne for 37 years. They have two children, Courtney and Jason, as well as a grandson, Liam, and a “grand dog” Lily.

What do you like about your job?

I have enjoyed being part of Campus Security’s growth. The tragedy at Virginia Tech caused Brock and all Canadian universities to recognize that we needed to plan develop policies which deal with major emergencies. We have played a role in developing emergency management, mass notification and evacuation plans to name a few. Brock has come a long way in the past five years but there is always room for improvement. Our short-term plans include a new communications and monitoring center in the Kenmore Center. At the same time, we have been working to deliver a good service to the Brock community.

What do you do for fun?

I was bitten by the golf bug many years ago. I haven’t been able to find an antidote to it.

What was the last good book you read?

Fall of Giants by Ken Follett.
