Penn State University Police & Public Safety Associate Vice President To Retire December 31

Penn State University Police and Public Safety (UPPS) Associate Vice President Charlie Noffsinger announced on Tuesday that he’ll retire on December 31. He has served in his current role since 2016.

Wesley Sheets, UPPS executive deputy chief of operations, will serve as the interim chief of police and public safety beginning January 1. Sheets, who has been with Penn State since 2013, will take on that position until a permanent replacement is found.

As associate vice president, Noffsinger currently manages all UPPS operations, including the university’s police force and police records, Clery Act compliance, office of Emergency Management, and physical security office. Additionally, he co-chairs the Behavioral Threat Management team.

“AVP Noffsinger’s leadership has positively influenced the department and his contributions will have a truly lasting impact,” Sara Thorndike, senior vice president for Finance and Business, said. “It’s been a pleasure working alongside Charlie, and I’m sure I speak for all on our team when I say that we are happy for his reaching this well-deserved milestone and accomplishment, although he will be missed.”

Prior to his time at Penn State, Noffsinger served as the chief of the Department of Public Safety at the University of Hawaii at Mãnoa. Additionally, he worked in a number of positions during his time at Michigan from 1988 to 2012.

“I have been honored to lead in a department dedicated to serving and protecting the Penn State and surrounding communities with respect, professionalism and accountability,” Noffsinger said. “I have full confidence that the exceptional leadership team within UPPS will continue this mission and the department will continue its work as an instrumental leader in innovative campus policing and public safety practices.”
