Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s pick to lead the agency that handles 911 calls in the District has received a green light from D.C. Council members who oversee the agency.

The Committee on Public Safety and the Judiciary approved the nomination of Jennifer A.J. Greene as director of the Office of Unified Communications during its mark-up hearing on Thursday.

Ms. Greene, a former commander in the Metropolitan Police Department’s 5th District who will be paid $179,000 per year, received unqualified support from former and current colleagues at a prior hearing before the committee.

Committee Chairman Phil Mendelson, at-large Democrat, said her employees appeared to be more relaxed about the agency’s condition with her at the helm, after years of shaky leadership that oversaw serious dispatch errors and a former director who was investigated for getting into an accident after taking a city car to a shopping mall.
