Allen, who became the department's first black deputy chief, left to become police chief in Decatur, Ala.

He holds a bachelor's degree in business administration, with a specialization in homeland security, from North Central University, where he graduated magna cum laude. He also is a graduate of the Georgia State University Senior Law Enforcement Command College and the FBI National Academy Session 196.
