Leon W. Brooks Jr., a public safety officer at Loyola University Maryland, passed away on Monday, Sept. 25.

"Leon was a dedicated campus police officer who knew the campus like the back of his hand,” said Adrian Black, director of public safety. “He has been a staple on his shift for a long time and will be missed.”

Brooks joined the Department of Public Safety on Oct. 21, 2013, and was approaching his 10-year anniversary as a campus police officer. His son, Leon W. Brooks III, attended Loyola from 2019-2021.

"Officer Brooks always came to work professionally and took his job seriously,” said Lt. Darelene Early-Wing. “He was a constructive and caring person and always had others' best interests at heart. Officer Brooks will be truly missed."
