BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Just months after being elevated to the top spot of the Palm Beach County School District police force, Chief Dan Alexander is leaving for an unannounced out-of-state job.
Alexander spent several years as Chief of the Boca Raton Police Department before joining the Palm Beach County School District.
This is the official announcement from the Palm Beach County School Board: On Thursday, January 6, 2022, the School District’s Chief of Police, Daniel Alexander, tendered his resignation in order to pursue a new career opportunity outside the state of Florida. His last day at the District will be January 21, 2022.
Dan Alexander first joined School District Police in December 2019 as Deputy Chief, after serving as the Chief of the Boca Raton Police Department for more than 13 years, and as Chief of Police in Cape Coral for four years before that. He was promoted to Chief of School Police in April 2021.
Chief Alexander’s career in law enforcement spans more than 33 years. Since joining School District Police, he has leveraged his expertise to expand and develop numerous safety initiatives.
In his letter to Superintendent Mike Burke, Chief Alexander stated “Over the last several months, we have successfully met significant challenges, to include the continuing pandemic, student wellness deficits and an increase in various threats to school safety.”
Chief Alexander is credited with implementing the SaferWatch solution for Alyssa’s Law compliance, he launched a reunification initiative, and revised District protocols to more effectively respond to mental health crises.
The District will conduct a nationwide search for a new, highly-experienced Chief of Police who will build on the District’s commitment to ensuring the safety, security, and support of all students and staff.
Information is forthcoming, regarding who will assume the role of Chief and serve on an interim basis until a permanent replacement is named.
Superintendent Burke thanked Chief Alexander for his dedicated leadership and contributions to the School District of Palm Beach County.
