Bousquet has been re-elected as the North Atlantic Regional Director of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) Board of Directors and appointed as a member of the National Internal Affairs Investigators Association (NIAIA) Executive Committee.

One of eight IACLEA regional directors, representing the U.S., Canada, and 33 other countries, Chief Bousquet will act as a resource and advocate for college campus police departments in six North Atlantic states. He was instrumental in organizing a successful joint regional professional development conference in Atlantic City, NJ, in April. This conference, hosted by both the North Atlantic and Mid-Atlantic Regions, consisted of delegates from 15 states and featured world-renowned professionals.

As one of three members of the colleges and universities branch of the NIAIA Executive Committee, Chief Bousquet is responsible for serving as a liaison between the association and colleges and universities, on both the state and national levels.

“I am privileged to represent law enforcement professionals in the college and university arena at the national and international level,” said Chief Bousquet. “The trusted confidence that I have from all the delegates in the New England states is a true honor. I am appreciative of their support as well as that of the Becker College administration. Without their backing, my work within these associations would not be possible.”

Chief Bousquet has served on the Becker College Police Department for nearly 21 years, the last 16 years as chief. He has additionally worked in state and municipal law enforcement as well as corporate and retail security. He also served in the United States Marine Corps under Honorable Conditions. He holds an associate’s degree in criminal justice and a bachelor’s degree in business management, both from Becker College.

He is a member of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association (MCPA), an active member of IACLEA, Northeast Colleges and Universities Security Association (NECUSA), and has served as Secretary, Vice President, and President of the Massachusetts Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (MACLEA). He currently serves on the MACLEA Training Committee and Executive Board, which interacts regularly with various law enforcement entities within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
