GPD Chief Inspector Jorge Campos named Chief of Police in Clemson, SC

Press release from Gainesville Police Department

The Gainesville Police Department (GPD) is proud to announce that Chief Inspector Jorge Campos was recently selected to become the Chief of Police for the Clemson Police Department in Clemson, South Carolina.

Reflecting on Chief Inspector Campos’ tenure at GPD, Chief Tony Jones notes: “Jorge is a person of many talents. In addition to his duties as Chief Inspector, Jorge has served as the department’s spokesman, accreditation manager, training and personnel manager, and recently assisted in advancing the cause of justice for all by working closely with my office to enhance police policies and procedures. He is a person that will pursue the position of what is right when it is not popular, a quality that has been instrumental in shaping this agency. His departure from GPD is bittersweet, a loss for our agency and this community, but a gain for the community of Clemson as their new Chief of Police. I want to thank Jorge and his family for their hard work and dedication to GPD and the City of Gainesville.”

“I am very grateful for all of the training, experience, and mentoring I have received over the last 28 years at the Gainesville Police Department from my co-workers, supervisors, and neighbors, which has prepared me for my goal of becoming a Chief one day. Chief Jones, as one of my mentors, has taught me the importance of community policing, creating partnerships, and bridging the gaps within the community no matter how difficult that may be. I wish to thank everyone who has helped me along the way, especially my wife and family, and I am looking forward to working with the Clemson family,” Chief Inspector Campos said.

Chief Inspector Campos will become Chief of the Clemson Police Department later next month.
