There's a new top cop in the Philadelphia School District.
Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Cynthia Dorsey took over as the district's Chief Safety Officer effective Monday. She replaces Chief Inspector Myron Patterson, another city police officer.
The shakeup is part of a series of moves made last week by Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. Patterson now heads one of the city's two Regional Operations Command centers.
Dorsey, a Philadelphia native and graduate of Girls' High and Temple University, is no stranger to school policing. A 28-year veteran of the police force, she once spent time as a captain overseeing school policing operations in West and Southwest Philadelphia.
