VU police chief Guyet to retire

Allan Guyet, Vanderbilt University's chief of police for the past eight years, will retire Dec. 31.

Guyet joined Vanderbilt after serving as chief of police at Yale University and managing director of public safety at Princeton University. He has more than 40 years of law enforcement experience, which began when he was a police officer in Newark, N.J.

“This December will mark my 45th year in law enforcement, and during that time I have had many interesting and challenging jobs and assignments, but Vanderbilt has been the highlight of my career,” Guyet said.

“Vanderbilt has benefited from his leadership, compassionate concern for our community and commitment to being a full partner in the life of our University,” said Lauren Brisky, vice chancellor for Administration and chief financial officer.

“We will miss him; however, he will leave a police department that is well poised to face future challenges and opportunities.”

Brisky said the University will determine over the next few months “how best to find a highly qualified person to become Vanderbilt's next chief of police.”
