Lattimore Moves On

Last week, Rutgers would not confirm what Plaintalker already heard: Former Public Safety Director Michael Lattimore was taking a key security job at Rutgers Newark.

Now, we have a press release dated Monday (Sept. 12, 2005) that spells out the news.

Lattimore, formerly in charge of the city’s two most costly divisions, Police and Fire, will now head a force of 85 public security employees covering safety on a 36-acre campus for more than 10,000 students and employees.

According to Rutgers' press material, Lattimore's past experience working with schools and community groups "will be a huge benefit as we shift to a community policing model on our campus.
