Delaware Safety and Homeland Security Names Executive Director to Lead New Police Officer Standards Training Commission

Recently the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security (DSHS) announced Sean E. Moriarty, Ed. D. as Executive Director of the new Police Officer Standards and Training Commission (POST).

POST, now a new division within DSHS, was created through House Bill 206 and signed into law in August to replace the Delaware Council on Police Training (COPT). Legislators, advocates, community members and law enforcement worked together to create the new Commission.

With more than 30 years of law enforcement experience, he will lead the Commission in establishing hiring and training standards for Delaware police officers as well as overseeing significant allegations of police officer misconduct. In addition, he will advise the Delaware Police Accreditation Commission (DPAC), which is responsible for establishing policy and standards for police agencies, assisting agencies with standardization and accreditation, and issuing guidelines for local police oversight commissions or boards.

“Director Moriarty’s commitment to upholding the highest standards of law enforcement makes him best suited to lead this new commission at this time. His wealth of experience and leadership will undoubtedly make a positive impact in his new role. I look forward to his continued contributions to our law enforcement community,” said Safety and Homeland Security Secretary Nathaniel McQueen Jr.

Director Moriarty, who recently retired from the State Police as a Major, focused significant time and effort on education, policy development, community engagement, and police professionalization during his career. He held various positions during his career including Director of Training for the DSP Training Academy and Administrator for COPT. In this capacity, he oversaw all aspects of recruitment, in-service, firearms, canine, and elective training. This included revising the entire training curriculum and enhancing instructor development.

“The Delaware Police Officer Standards and Training and the Police Accreditation Commissions will play a significant role in collaborating and assisting law enforcement agencies towards greater professionalization, standardization, and accountability. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue serving our citizens in this new role,” said Executive Director Moriarty.

He holds a Doctorate of Education in Innovation and Leadership, a Master of Science in Criminal Justice, a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice, and he is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy.
