New police captain joins LSC-Kingwood

Lone Star College-Kingwood has welcomed its new police captain Daniel Hatfield to its ranks. Captain Hatfield, who previously served the System and LSC-Tomball since 2006, replaced Captain Stephen Phillips who now works at LSC-Montgomery.

“Those who worked with Captain Phillips knew him as a consummate professional whose style made him easy to approach. I am pleased to report that Capt. Hatfield has these same qualities and I look forward to working with him in the near future,” said Dr. Katherine Persson, president.

Prior to working for the System, Hatfield worked and retired from the San Antonio Police Department with 25 years of service; worked 17 years as a reserve deputy constable with Montgomery County Constable Office Pct. 4 and retired from the Air Force Reserve Security Forces with 32 years of service.

“In addition to the long-term goal of ensuing a safe learning environment for our students, faculty and staff, I have short-term goals of establishing a bicycle patrol, participating in a campus Behavior Intervention Team, conducting multi-hazard response training for our staff and safety briefing for the campus community,” he said.

Hatfield is a product of the community college system. He has an Associate of Arts degree from Alamo Community College and a BBA in Marketing from St. Mary’s University. He also earned his Master Police Officer certification and a Police Instructors certification.

The new police captain and his wife Carol have two daughters and one son. They are also the proud grandparents of seven grandchildren.
