Executive Director

Frank Demes

Frank Demes oversees Case Western Reserve University’s police and security operations, as well as communications (dispatch), emergency management and facilities security. Demes joined Case Western Reserve in November 2015.

A 26-year veteran of the George Washington University Police Department, Demes comes from a department that includes more than 100 police and security officers who serve a university community including more than 25,000 faculty, staff and students.

“I am inspired by this opportunity to lead the Case Western Reserve’s safety and security efforts during a time of great expansion and excitement at the university,” Demes said. “I look forward to learning more about ways we can serve the campus even more effectively going forward.”
