Maryland State Police Superintendent Retiring

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police Superintendent Terrence Sheridan is retiring.

Gov. Martin O’Malley made the announcement Friday. The governor says Marcus Brown, who is currently the chief of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, will replace Sheridan on Aug. 1 to lead an agency with more than 2,500 employees.

Sheridan is retiring after 46 years of law enforcement experience. He was the chief of the Baltimore County Police Department for more than 11 years.

Brown has been the MDTA chief since 2007. He previously worked as the deputy commissioner of operations for the Baltimore Police Department, where he was responsible for more than 3,000 officers and all operational units.

    Funny how things come full circle isn’t it? How quick everybody has forgotten the whole Marcus Brown retirement flap when he left the city police for MDTA care of the newly elected O’Malley and all the back room shenanigans that cost city tax payers.

    So will he get a sweet pension deal from the MDTA like he got from the City.

    Brown as Superintendent? Having been in law enforcement, all I can say is “Yuo gotta be kidding me.” O’TaxMe is a verified idiot.
