O'Malley To Name New Police Superintendent
Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) plans to announce Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence B. Sheridan as his pick as the next superintendent of the Maryland State Police, according to several people familiar with the decision.
Sheridan, 63, who previously spent 30 years rising through the ranks of the State Police, will replace Col. Thomas E. Hutchins, who was appointed by former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) in 2003 and has continued to serve during the first five months of the O'Malley administration.
The announcement by O'Malley is planned for tomorrow afternoon outside the Maryland State Police barracks in Pikesville. The position is one of the last remaining Cabinet posts O'Malley has to fill.
Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith is also expected to announce Sheridan's replacement, James W. Johnson.
