Roberts is appointed to administrative post at detention center

William L. Roberts, a veteran county jail officer, has been named assistant correctional facility administrator for the Jennifer Road Detention Center in Annapolis.

Roberts began his career as a detention officer in 1982 and has served as a classification supervisor, manager of volunteer programs and supervisor for alternative sentencing. He is a graduate of Towson University with a degree in sociology and serves as a major in the Maryland Army National Guard.

In his new position, Roberts will oversee the inmate services bureau at Jennifer Road, which includes pretrial services, inmate classification and inmate records.

The assistant administrator position was vacated with the promotion last month of William H. Martin Jr. to administrator of the county's other jail, on Ordnance Road. Martin was promoted after the retirement of former administrator James O'Neill.
