District's New Safety and Security Coordinator
Meet Officer Joe Kozarian, Fox Chapel Area School District’s new safety and security coordinator.
Officer Kozarian brings 15 years of law enforcement experience to Fox Chapel Area. He comes from the Brentwood Borough School District, where he serves as director of security and facilities.
As part of his duties, he’ll oversee the creation of a school police force, and an officer will be assigned to each of the district’s six schools. Like the school resource officers already in place at the high school and Dorseyville Middle School, the officers will be armed. All officers will be retired federal agents or state, municipal, or military police officers or sheriffs.
More information about the district’s safety plan will be detailed at a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 25 in the high school large group instruction room. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
Below is a video interview of Officer Kozarian. Welcome to Fox Chapel Area, Officer Kozarian!
