Governor Hogan announced today the appointment of Robert L. Green as the next secretary of the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. Green currently serves as the director of the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation. He replaces Acting Secretary Mike Ziegler, who has served in the position since March.
From the Governor’s press release,
“Rob Green is a nationally recognized and respected leader with more than 34 years in public safety and corrections,” said Governor Hogan. “He brings a tremendous wealth of experience to the department, and Marylanders can trust he will prioritize the safety of all who come into contact with our corrections system – both for our inmate population and our correctional officers. I would also like to thank Mike Ziegler for his steady leadership of the department during this transition.”
