Nina Jamsen, Cal State San Bernardino’s chief of police and director of public safety, will be honored by Assemblymember James C. Ramos as a 2019 Woman of Distinction in the 40th Assembly District on Friday, March 29, at the Redlands Country Club. “I’m honored, humbled and glad I have made some sort of impact on law enforcement and women leaders,” said Jamsen, who is now in her fourth academic year of serving the university. In honor of Women’s History Month, Assemblymember Ramos, who is a CSUSB alumnus, asked the public to nominate exceptional women who live or work within the 40th Assembly District and who have made a significant contribution to the community or an impact on people’s lives. “Chief Jamsen joined the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department in 1987 and has achieved many milestones for women leaders in law enforcement,” Ramos said on his Twitter page. Jamsen has been recognized for her work in law enforcement many times throughout her career. For instance, she has been nominated Officer of the Year by the San Bernardino Area Chamber of Commerce, recognized as a female pioneer by the city of San Bernardino, and received the highest recognition from Police Officer Standards and Training by receiving the Executive Development Certificate in 2017. “I hope I’m an inspiration for women leaders in law enforcement and those that are considering a career in our noble profession,” Jamsen said. “I’m so glad to be part of our campus community, UPD and the area we serve.”
