Before accepting her new post, Dalton served for 27 years with the Atlanta Police Department–starting as a patrol officer and eventually becoming the head of the Office of Professional Standards.

Chief Dalton joined Rose Scott and Denis O’Hayer on “A Closer Look” to talk about safety issues on the campus, how to educate students about sexual assault and campus police training.
