Michael Redmond

UT MD Anderson PD


Born and raised outside Boston, Massachusetts, Mike Redmond was the youngest of five kids.  With two parents and several other family members as educators, Education was a family focus.  After earning his Bachelors of Arts from UMASS Amherst, he graduated from the UT System Police Academy in December, 2001.   Just out of Field Training, Mike Redmond welcomed the opportunity to work in the largest medical center in the world and at the number-one cancer center in the nation, dedicatedly spending the majority of his time on the front lines of MD Anderson Cancer Center working with patients, family members and employees, building community rapport and institutional relationships.   Mike Redmond was promoted to Sergeant in 2004, earned his Master's in Business Administration (MBA) in 2005 and promoted to Lieutenant in 2010.  He served on all shifts of Operations between 2001 and 2011 with several years as the MD Anderson Main Hospital Sergeant, which allowed him to return to his work with the campus community in leadership role and again build important institutional bridges and lasting partnerships.   In 2011, Mike was assigned to a Planning and Special Projects role.  One of his many accomplishments in the role of Special Projects is the expansion of the UTP-H Community Outreach program.  In addition to his many Community Outreach presentations, he is an experienced police instructor in Use of Force, OC Spray, Firearms, ALERRT-Response to Active Shooter, Crisis Intervention (CIT), Threat Management, CPI Nonviolent Crisis Intervention, and Verbal Judo.
