Lycoming College is pleased to welcome Steve Amrom as its new director of Safety and Security. In this position, he will lead efforts to sustain the College’s safe and supportive campus environment, manage the daily activities of the College’s safety and security officers, oversee the emergency planning program and maintain relationships with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Amrom’s strong communication skills have helped him build rapport in multi-cultural environments and public confidence in the programs, policies and practices of organizations that he worked for previously.
“Steve is a skilled investigator and experienced manager and we are fortunate to have him join our team,” said Dan Miller, vice president for student life. “He is an enthusiastic professional dedicated to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.”
Amrom comes to Lycoming from the DuBoistown Police Department where he performed criminal investigations, patrol and traffic control duties. He was also employed as a district security officer by the U.S. Marshals Service where he provided courtroom security and transported persons in custody between incarceration locations.
Prior to that, he was security manager for DynCorp International in Kandahar, Afghanistan, where he managed the physical security and biometrics screening on eight U.S. military bases. His duties included overseeing 150 U.S. and foreign country employees approving supervisor work plans, assessing threats, interviewing for promotions and investigating disciplinary issues.
Amrom served in positions of increasing responsibility with DynCorp and the U.S. Army in the Middle East for more than thirteen years.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Temple University in Philadelphia.
