The Oregon State Police contingent at Oregon State University is about to get a new commander.

On Aug. 1, Lt. Teresa Bloom will take charge of law enforcement on campus following the transfer of Lt. Steve Mitchell to the Coos Bay Area Command, the agency announced Friday.

Bloom, 42, joined the Oregon State Police in 2004, initially being assigned at the Coos Bay office. In 2006, she transferred to the Roseburg Area Command, where she worked in both patrol and criminal division assignments. In 2010, she was promoted to sergeant in the Criminal Investigations Division at the Roseburg office, then transferred two years later to an inspector position in the Office of Professional Standards at OSP headquarters in Salem.

Uniformed Oregon state troopers are responsible for law enforcement, criminal investigations, traffic enforcement, bicycle enforcement, accident response, crowd control and crime prevention on the OSU campus, working in partnership with the university’s Department of Public Safety.
