Retired Southern Police Chief Joseph Dooley, MBA ’10, is joining Wallingford-based public safety company Mutualink as its newest Director of Public Safety and Security Solutions.
With more than 41 years of law enforcement experience, including managing public safety of Southern Connecticut State University, Dooley will be a key asset to helping more schools enhance their campus safety and emergency response technology.
Dooley will work directly with school and police leaders to bring life-saving technology to their campuses, which will help eliminate gaps in communication, reduce response times and improve coordination with other agencies, ultimately saving lives.
Dooley earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of New Haven and a master’s in business administration from Southern. In addition, he’s been honored with the Distinguished Chief’s Award presented by the Police Commissioners Association of Connecticut.
During his 16-year career at Southern, Dooley was instrumental in bringing in two K-9 Officers, Brody and Jules, promoting Connecticut’s Blue Envelope program, and increasing community policing efforts.
“I’ve spent my career in public service, and I’m proud to continue that service by promoting technology that will save minutes and lives during critical emergency situations,” said Dooley.
