The move to the District will allow the chief to return to familiar territory. Chief Dine began his policing career with the Metropolitan Police Department, and in 2002 retired as an assistant chief after spending 27 years on the force. He has led the Frederick Police Department for 10 years.
A U.S. Capitol Police spokesman said Chief Dine is expected to take control of the agency in mid-December. The federal law enforcement agency protects congressional property, members of Congress and their families.
At MPD, Chief Dine’s last assignment was as the assistant chief who oversaw internal affairs, disciplinary reviews, and other internal matters, according to his biography on the Frederick Police Department’s website. Before that, he also worked as the commander of the First District - which includes Capitol Hill.
