Deputy Capitol Police Chief Steps Down

The Capitol Police Department announced this afternoon that Assistant Chief James Rohan will step down from his post at the end of the month after some 30 years of service on the force.

Capitol Police officials said an internal selection process for his replacement is currently ongoing.

Rohan, who has held the assistant chief post for less than a year and a half, will officially retire on Oct. 28. Rohan began serving with the Capitol Police in 1975 on the Senate Division.

“Jim has played a dynamic role in moving the department forward and leading us into the next millennium,” said Chief Terrence Gainer in a release. “After 30 years of dedicated service, we¹ll have some big shoes to fill.”
