Chief KatzCol. Jeffrey S. Katz, who will serve as the Chesterfield County Police Department’s eighth chief since its formation in 1914, was sworn in on Jan. 2, 2018.

He started his law enforcement career in 1989 as a police cadet with the Plantation, Fla., Police Department. Katz was later hired by Plantation as a community service officer. In 1994, he joined the City of Parkland, Fla., Public Safety Department as both a full-time police officer and professional firefighter.

He joined the Boynton Beach, Fla., Police Department in 1998. He was promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2001, and earned the rank of lieutenant in 2004.  Katz assumed his role as chief of the Boynton Beach Police Department on an interim basis in July 2013.

He has begun his doctoral dissertation, which seeks to measure the effects of malicious rumoring on the leadership/followership relationship. During his studies, he has done extensive research in: destructive leadership behavior, organizational incivility, mobbing, and corporate psychopathy.

Katz is a graduate of the Southern Police Institute’s Command Officer Development Course and the FBI National Academy, and has completed several executive level courses in leadership and management through Harvard University and the University of Notre Dame.
