Captain Daniel Benitez
Congratulations to our newly appointed Captain Daniel Benitez.
The Vice President for Student Affairs and Director of the University Policy Department would like to announce the promotion of Daniel Benitez to the Captain position in the University Police Department. He started his employment with this department in 1997 as a Police Officer. In 2001, he advanced to the rank of Police Sergeant through his ability to lead others, vision and professionalism. He brings a wealth of knowledge to his new position as he has served as a supervisor of Patrol, Crime Prevention, and was the Administrative Sergeant.
His commitment to this department and the university is displayed as he volunteers for various groups such as Emerging Stars, SACA, speaker for ASG as well as his professional affiliations with the Texas Municipal Police Association, Hispanic Policy Network, and the Texas State University Police Officer Association to name a few.
Please join us in congratulating Captain Benitez to his new position. Felicidades y prosperidad!
In support of HAPCOA’s Vision, Mission, Values, and Goals, We have created an honorary scholarship funded membership for a student from Texas State University majoring in Criminal Justice. This honorary member will have the opportunity to experience how a professional organization made up of primarily Hispanic police commanders operates. He or she will also experience the art of networking within the police environment and be exposed to our national training conference.
In addition to the chapter’s membership, the selected student will attend HAPCOA’s National Training Conference at our expense. In order to make this initiative a true valuable experience, attendance at the national conference is necessary. The networking that occurs and the career expo would be a tremendous opportunity for them and for us.
The Texas State University Police Department has also pledged to contribute to this tremendous opportunity. The police department will invite the student to all in-house 120 hour training program to include firearms and tactical training, to leadership and professional development.
