Fulton County school leaders have appointed a new chief for the district’s police department.
Melvin G. Dean, a law enforcement veteran with nearly 30 years’ military and law enforcement experience in Fulton County, took his oath of office at a school board meeting this week.
He replaces Felipe Usury, who resigned from the post in September. School officials did not give the reason for Usury’s resignation. Dean is no relation to school board member Gail Dean, who represents areas in Sandy Springs and East Point and all of Hapeville schools.
