Mark Magaw Named Interim Chief of PGPD
The 27-year veteran of the department was named interim chief after Roberto Hylton was asked to step down.
Mark Magaw was named interim chief of the Prince George's County police by the newly sworn in county executive Rushern Baker, ending former chief Roberto Hylton's two-year tenure on the job.
According to a press release, Magaw is a 27-year veteran of the police department, and formerly served as the Deputy Chief in charge of the Bureau of Strategic Management.
Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey said last week on TBD TV that former chief Roberto Hylton would be asked to step down, though Baker's office would not confirm the statement at that time. This came as news to Hylton, who said he had no plans to step down unless asked by Baker to do so.
Baker also replaced PGFD fire chief Eugene Jones, and named Marc S. Bashoor as acting fire chief.
