U-Md. picks new police chief

Matt Zapotosky

A former Prince George’s County police chief and Maryland State Police superintendent will take over as police chief and public safety director at the University of Maryland, the school announced Wednesday.

David B. Mitchell, who worked more than 24 years with the Prince George’s police, will lead a force of more than 150 officers and support staff, the university said in a news release. He will officially take over the job June 7.

Most recently, Mitchell worked as an adjunct professor in public safety leadership at Johns Hopkins University. Before that, he was secretary of the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security, the university said.

The Diamondback, the university’s student newspaper, has extensive reporting on Mitchell’s appointment.
