Duke's new top cop starts his new job

April 1, 2009 

The 2007 shooting spree that left 32 people dead at Virginia Tech changed the way college campuses are policed.

There is far more technology in play, closer relationships between police and and other campus services, and far higher expectations.

That's the landscape facing John H. Dailey, who today takes over as Duke University's new police chief.

This is a homecoming for Dailey, a Durham native who spent his summers as a kid working campus security at Duke.
