Penn State Beaver hires police officer
Penn State Beaver has hired Officer Marque R. Wiese as the newest member of the campus Police Services Department, effective April 2. Wiese was hired to fill the position vacated by Officer Anthony Budris after Budris became police services supervisor following the retirement of former supervisor Officer Ron Schwartz. Schwartz had served in that position since 1983 and retired at the end of December 2011.
Wiese had worked as a full-time police officer at Point Park University since 2011 and, prior to that, spent three years as a full-time police officer in Aliquippa. He spent four years studying criminology at Indiana State University, holds an associate degree in police technology from Community College of Beaver County, and is enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program in criminal justice at Point Park University.
Wiese is Act 120 certified which means he successfully completed the Municipal Police Officers' Training Academy which gives trainees the skills they need to attain success as police officers. In addition, he is a firearms instructor and is trained in CPR, first aid, AED, and taser use.
He is one of six full-time police officers at Beaver campus which covers 105 acres in Center Township and enrolls almost 900 students, with approximately 200 students living in Harmony Hall residence hall. Beaver campus police officers are on duty 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days of the year.
