DeLeaver to reclaim old job as chief of MTA police force

April 26, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

After just four months, the superintendent of the Maryland Natural Resources Police is transferring back to his old job as chief of the Maryland Transit Aministration Police Force.

Col. Douglas DeLeaver asked for the reassignment, which takes effect Thursday. He will be replaced at Natural Resources by Scott Sewell, a former state and federal law enforcement officer and corporate security manager.

"Colonel DeLeaver wanted very much to return to the MTA police," said Paul Schurick, communications director for Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. "I believe his love is with the MTA."

The MTA position had been unfilled since DeLeaver left that job to head the 290-member Natural Resources Police force.

DeLeaver has been in law enforcement 33 years, and spent the first two decades of his career with the state police. His daughter, Shareese N. DeLeaver, is an Ehrlich spokeswoman.

Sewell, a 52-year-old Baltimore County resident, is manager of security for Visa International. He spent 20 years in the state police and five years as U.S. marshal for Maryland before entering the private sector.
