Biography

Craig Munroe is the operations captain for the IUPD-Bloomington division, which makes him responsible for the uniformed officers who work around the clock to keep campus safe.

"I love law enforcement. I love patrol. I love interacting with the community," he said in this profile after his appointment in 2017. "This (position) gives me the chance to do this and to share my 35 years of experience with the younger officers."

Munroe began working for IUPD in 1979 as part of the IU Cadet Officer Program. He graduated from the IU Police Academy in 1980 and began working full-time for IUPD the following year. His policing roles over the years include patrol officer, public information officer, and most recently, administrative lieutenant for IU Public Safety. In that position, his duties involved coordinating projects, plus procurement and implementation of law enforcement equipment, computer hardware and software that is used by the seven divisions of the IU Police Department. He also coordinated the statewide communications systems used to provide police dispatching and emergency services response.
