Several commanders will take over new posts in the Baltimore County Police Department this week, officials have announced.

Capt. John A. Spiroff, 49, who has been commander of the Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center in Calverton, will become commander of the Wilkens Precinct, replacing Capt. Stephen Vaughan, who has retired after 30 years of service. Spiroff, a 23-year department veteran, commanded the precinct from July 1997 to December 2001.

Capt. David P. Moxley, 49, will replace Spiroff at MCAC, where federal, state and local law enforcement officers analyze potential threats to homeland security. Moxley, a 27-year veteran, will leave his post as commander of the Franklin Precinct.

Capt. Charles W. Rapp, Jr., 44, the former commander of the training academy, will replace Moxley in the Franklin Precinct. Rapp is a 22-year department veteran.

Lt. Kimberley Meeks-Hall, 39, will be promoted to captain and assigned to the office of the western area major, responsible for all aspects of opening the new Pikesville Precinct, where construction is scheduled to begin in December.

Lt. Karen A. Johnson, 41, will be promoted to captain and take command of the Towson Precinct, where she has been the acting commander.

Lt. Roman D. Zaryk, 47, will be promoted to captain and become the commander of the intelligence unit.

All changes take effect Thursday.

"Baltimore County is facing significant new challenges as the county continues to grow, and as it works to achieve the highest state of readiness in the areas of homeland security and emergency preparedness," Chief Terrence B. Sheridan said in a statement.
