BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County School District just hired its latest police chief, with the School Board unanimously voting to welcome Sarah Mooney to the top spot.
Mooney replaces Dan Alexander, the former Boca Raton Police Chief, who left the School District for a position out of Florida.
The School District of Palm Beach County made the announcement Wednesday night with this advisory:
The Palm Beach County School Board has unanimously approved Sarah Mooney to join the District as Chief of School Police and School District Security. The veteran law enforcement officer will be sworn in as Chief on May 4, 2022, and lead School Police effective that day.
Mooney comes to the District from the West Palm Beach Police Department where she has worked for 27 years in various high-level positions including Chief of Police and Assistant Chief of Police.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to lead the Palm Beach County School Police,” Mooney said. “I do not take the responsibility lightly. As a native of Palm Beach County, I have a vested interest in providing the highest level of service to our School District. Ensuring the students and staff have a safe and secure environment at our schools is a community priority. As a 27-year veteran in local law enforcement, I feel my experience and well-established working relationships with other local law enforcement agencies and community partners will provide the groundwork for a collaborative approach to protecting our school community.”
In addition to her extensive experience in law enforcement, Mooney earned a master’s degree in Social Work from Florida State University and a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from the University of Missouri.
