Search for new Baltimore County police chief focused on diversity, community relationships

January 30, 2023

Next month, members of an eight-person panel will begin interviewing candidates for the county’s next police chief before they recommend finalists to Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. Twenty people have applied to the position, which was advertised nationally and remains open, following the conclusion of former Chief Melissa Hyatt’s contract Dec. 5. Interim Chief Dennis Delp, tapped by Olszewski to temporarily replace Hyatt, is not among the candidates, after initially indicating he wanted the permanent job. “For personal reasons, I have decided not to pursue the appointment at this time,” Delp said in a statement Thursday.
