As a result of Poughkeepsie police officer George Lochner’s report on Vassar’s security system, Vice President for Administration James Ritterskamp endorsed a “tighter security force” with more stringent qualifications in hiring and more extensive training. The Lochner Report was released in its entirety at the October 18th meeting of the board of trustees.

George Lochner served as head of Vassar security from 1986 until 1996.
