Governor Larry Hogan has nominated William M. Pallozzi to serve as Superintendent for the Maryland State Police. As reported in The Washington Post:
Pallozzi, who is slated to become a colonel, has held an array of leadership positions within the state police force, including commander of the Executive Protection Section, which provides security for the governor and other elected officials. He began his career with the Maryland State Police as a patrol trooper in 1989.
“I am confident that he will lead the men and women of this respected agency with the utmost integrity and will work tirelessly to protect and serve all the citizens of Maryland,” Hogan said in a statement.
The post, which is subject to confirmation by the state Senate, is among the last of roughly two dozen Cabinet positions Hogan has sought to fill since taking office Jan. 21.
