EVSC Names New Safety and Security Coordinator



The EVSC Board of School Trustees approved the hiring of Gregory Fleck as the EVSC’s new safety and security coordinator and adopted a policy to establish him as the EVSC’s official police officer (per I.C. 20-26-16-1). He begins in his new role on April 23. Fleck comes to EVSC following a 22-year tenure with the Evansville Police Department.

Among his job responsibilities, Fleck will evaluate the EVSC’s security programs; establish and coordinate a school-wide Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug prevention program; evaluate and coordinate efforts to promote pedestrian, school bus, and traffic safety; and record and evaluate emergency preparedness plans for all of the EVSC’s facilities.

Fleck will also monitor and evaluate building security systems; serve as a safety contact for school principals, staff, parents and the general public; act as a liaison with public-safety authorities and school resource officers on all matters affecting school security; assist the Office of Transportation with any safety or security matters; identify and apply for grants that will assist with the safety and security of EVSC schools; and coordinate the preparation of local, state and federal safety reports.

While with the Evansville Police Department, Fleck was a member of the Patrol Division; a field training officer where he was awarded the first Field Training Officer of the Year Award; and a member of the EPD SWAT team. Fleck also served as a certified instructor for the Southwest Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, the EPD Officer Training School and the Citizen’s Academy. In addition, Fleck has been involved with the EVSC’s Randall T. Shepard Academy for Law and Social Justice.

In 2000, he began serving as detective in the Violent Crimes Unit and also served as a polygraph examiner after graduating from the Polygraph Training-Backster School of Lie Detection. Fleck holds an associate of arts degree from Ivy Tech Community College.

“Greg has been in the Evansville area most of his adult life and, coupled with his experience with the Evansville Police Department, he will be able to assist the EVSC in our continued effort to keep our students and our schools safe,” said Paul Neidig, EVSC chief administrative officer. “Greg will be able to build upon the foundation that the EVSC has already created in the safety and security of our students, staff and schools and we look forward to working with him on this.”

Fleck replaces Gerald Summers, who was coordinator of safety and security at EVSC from 2006-2013.
