Sheriff Tregoning reorganizes Office, appoints Chief Deputy
Westminster, Carroll County, Maryland, March 5, 2013 ---- Sheriff Kenneth L. Tregoning is pleased to announce an internal reorganization in connection with completion of the Sheriff’s Office transition into the role of Carroll’s primary law enforcement agency. On December 23, 2010, the Board of Carroll County Commissioners unanimously approved a three year transition of primary police services from the Maryland State Police Resident Trooper program, which included the acquisition of forty-two (42) law enforcement officers by the Sheriff’s Office, replacing forty-five (45) contractual positions. The final class of deputy sheriff recruits is in their final weeks of entry level training, and set to graduate in early May.
To insure unity of command in this new role, Major Phillip S. Kasten has been appointed to the position of Chief Deputy, which has been vacant since the retirement of Colonel Robert L. Keefer on July 9, 2008. The daily operational and administrative responsibilities for the Departments’ of Sheriff Services and Corrections require immediate and detailed attention by the Chief Deputy’s position. Major Kastens’ duties and responsibilities as Administrative Services Bureau Chief were consolidated within the Management Services Bureau, and the Administrative Services Bureau since eliminated. Additionally, Sheriff Tregoning has consolidated the Investigative and Field Services Bureau’s, appointing Major Thomas H. Long as Bureau Chief.
The positions of Investigative Services Bureau Chief and two Sheriff’s Services Assistant Chief positions have been reallocated as non-appointed, division commanders as follows; Patrol Division, Special Operations Division, and Investigative Services Division. A third Commander will be selected through a competitive, internal promotional process to fill the vacated Investigative Services Commander position. Through this reorganization, Sheriff Tregoning has consolidated leadership by streamlining responsibilities according to function while increasing accountability within budget through elimination of an appointed position.
