Gaithersburg names police chief
Mark P. Sroka, who was named Gaithersburg's interim police chief earlier this year, has been given the job for good, city officials announced Thursday morning.
Sroka will take the post July 12. The former chief, John King, resigned in January.
While with the Maryland State Police, Sroka served as an assistant chief, commanding 10 barracks and 460 officers and civilian personnel, Gaithersburg officials said. He holds a masters degree in criminal justice from the University of Baltimore and an undergraduate criminology degree from the University of Maryland.
City officials had conducted a months-long search before Sroka was chosen. He accepted a three-year contract and an annual salary of $145,903.
The Gaithersburg Police Department has 54 sworn officers who share duties with Montgomery County's police force.
