Davis To Be Named Deputy Police Chief
Maj. Pamela Davis will become the county's newest deputy police chief in a special ceremony Thursday morning in Edgewater. She had previously served as interim chief earlier this year.
Several police officers, including former interim police chief Pamela Davis, are scheduled to be honored at a promotional ceremony Thursday morning at the southern district police station in Edgewater.
According to a police press release, Davis, a 19-year veteran of the department, will be promoted to Deputy Chief of the Office of Executive Services on Wednesday. Her previous posts include Commander of the Training Academy, the Criminal Investigation Division and both the southern and eastern districts.
In July, Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold appointed Davis as interim police chief following former police chief James Teare’s announcement that he would retire effective Aug. 1. However, 15 days later on July 26, Leopold named Larry W. Tolliver as the new head of the police department, effective July 31.
Davis will replace former Deputy Chief Emerson Davis who retired in August, and Deputy Chief David E. Pressley, who is set to retire in September.
The promotional ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Thursday will honor several other officers receiving promotions:
- Capt. William Krampf to the position of major of the Patrol Services Bureau.
- Lt. Michelle Simpson to the position of captain of the southern district.
- Lt. Timothy Altomare to the position of captain of the northern district.
- Lt. Herbert Hasenpusch to the position of captain of the Office of Emergency Management.
“These deserving commanders are assets to the police department and the community they serve,” Tolliver said in the press release. “It gives me great pleasure to announce their promotions, and to recognize their individual achievements and dedication to the police department.”
