DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis introduced the county's new police chief on Wednesday.
Cedric Alexander is currently the security director for the TSA at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Alexander, who starts in April, began his career as a police officer in Miami in 1977. He's also a clinical psychologist who says he's ready to make the department stronger.
There are also plans to realign precincts in the county and hire more police officers.
