Veteran Law Enforcement Leader Named
Interim Chief of Cheverly Police Department
David Morris
Interim Chief David Morris
Cheverly Town Administrator, Dylan Galloway, announced today that David Morris will serve as interim Chief of Police for the Cheverly Police Department. Morris brings nearly 40 years of law enforcement experience to the agency. A nationwide search will be underway to select a permanent chief.
Interim Chief Morris will begin on July 10, 2023. He replaces the former chief, Carl Miller, who resigned from the department last month.
Interim Chief Morris has an extensive law enforcement background and has served residents of Prince George’s County and the immediate region dating back to 1985. He began his career with the Prince George’s County Police Department. He rose through the ranks of that agency and served in a variety of critical roles until his retirement in 2011. Interim Chief Morris then took the helm as Chief of Police of the Riverdale Park Police Department and led that agency for 10 years. In 2021, he was selected by the Chief of the Anne Arundel County Police Department to serve as her Chief of Staff until April of 2023. In addition to serving in these key positions, Interim Chief Morris has worked on behalf of the Maryland Chiefs of Police and Maryland Sheriffs’ Associations in multiple leadership roles for more than a decade.
Quote from Interim Chief David Morris:
“I’m both honored and humbled to have been asked to serve the Town of Cheverly in this role and to assist the Mayor and Council, Town Administrator Galloway, and all those who call Cheverly home during this time of transition."
Statement from Town Administrator Dylan Galloway:
“Interim Chief Morris’s resume is extensive and impressive. For decades, he has been committed to service and he will continue that dedication as our interim chief. I am grateful he has agreed to take on this role and serve the residents of Cheverly. He is a deeply respected public servant and law enforcement leader in both Prince George’s County and across the state of Maryland. I look forward to working with him as we search for the next chief of the Cheverly Police Department.”
