Daniel Malloy has been appointed the new assistant chief and chief of operations for the United States Capitol Police, the department announced last week.

He replaces Tom Reynolds, who retired in March.
Malloy joined the Capitol force in 1985 and served in a variety of areas, including communications, hazardous devices, operational services and dignitary protection.

His work experience has given him a wide range of skills. He is a trained hazardous materials specialist, bomb technician and crisis management specialist.

Malloy graduated from uniformed officer to sergeant in 1995. He moved up the ranks, and in 2006, became a captain and led operations within the Command Center.

In 2012, he was promoted to deputy chief and became the bureau commander of the Operational Services Bureau. Before that, he led the Hazardous Incident Response Division and worked as an inspector for the Dignitary Protection Division.
