State's top lawman to speak at CSU

University Relations // 03.07.2017

South Carolina Law Enforcement Chief, Mark Keel, will speak to CSU students March 20. The Criminal Justice Department has asked Chief Keel to speak about Ethics and Law Enforcement.

“At Charleston Southern, we talk about doing the right things for the right reasons," said criminal justice professor Bob Peterson. "We recognize how easy it is to slip-up in a moment and ruin a reputation for a lifetime.”

Peterson believes Chief Keel will be a terrific law enforcement person to talk about integrity and ethics in that profession. “Even Keel’s critics don’t question his integrity,” adds Peterson.

Chief Keel has been SLED’s Chief since 2011. He’s native of Barnwell, SC, with more than 40 years as a law enforcement officer.

All students, faculty and staff are invited to hear Chief Keel speak, March 20th, 2 pm, in the Gold Room on the second floor of the Thurmond building.
