Governor Larry Hogan Announces Glenn Fueston as Executive Director of Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today announced V. Glenn Fueston, Jr., as the new executive director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention. Fueston currently serves as the associate deputy director for Intelligence and Information Sharing at the Washington/Baltimore Area High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), a federal grant program administered by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.
“Glenn’s proven leadership and experience in collaborating with federal, state, and local partners to address drug trafficking will be a strong asset to our administration, particularly as we fight the heroin epidemic,” said Governor Hogan. “His experience in using intelligence to reduce drug trafficking and related violent crime will guide the Office’s grant-making decisions and priorities. I have every confidence Glenn will continue to use his expertise to lead the Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention.”
“I am honored to support the Hogan administration by leading the Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention,” said Fueston. “This is an exciting opportunity to protect our communities and make Maryland a better and safer place to live for all.”
Fueston joined the Washington/Baltimore Area High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area in 1999. He is currently responsible for the Intelligence and Information Sharing Initiative, which includes the development, maintenance, and implementation of the HIDTA Performance Measurement Process System and Case Explorer and supporting the 850 law enforcement officers across Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia that work directly in the HIDTA environment.
Fueston will replace Christopher Shank, who was appointed as a deputy chief of staff to Governor Hogan on January 29, 2016.
