Commend an Employee

We recognize that our success depends on how well we work with our community. The LSU Police Department encourages students, faculty, staff, and visitors to compliment/commend an Officer or staff member if they went above and beyond the call of duty. 

If you would like to praise or compliment a member of the LSU Police Department, please use the form below or email Chief Bart Thompson at

Receiving a compliment means a great deal to the members of our department. Once it is received, the member and his/her chain of command are notified and a copy is placed in the member's personnel file. 

I authorize that all information provided on this form, including any and all personal, financial, and academic data may be shared with the LSU Police Department, necessary LSU personnel, and/or law enforcement entities to facilitate thorough investigation and response. This data will be securely retained if required by law or policy, for the scheduled amount of time designated by the LSUPD Records Retention Schedule approved by the Louisiana Secretary of State, Division of Archives.
