Chatman has served with the University of Cincinnati’s department of public safety since 2005 and is currently a captain. Chatman said he was drawn to the University’s sense of family and engaged, values-driven campus community.

“What first attracted me to the position was the University’s job description. They were seeking an energetic, collaborative individual to lead a cutting-edge public safety department focused on community policing,” Chatman said. “When I came to campus, I found people who are truly about making the University of Dayton a better place, people who I could be family with.”

Chatman said he’s especially looking forward to meeting students and getting to know them and their concerns.

Chatman will begin his new role on January 19. Bruce Burt, who currently holds that position is retiring in February after 14 years of service.
