Washington, DC (12/17/12) — Today, the United States Capitol Police (USCP) welcomes its new chief of police, Kim Dine, to the Department. Chief Dine was sworn in today as the new USCP chief of police by members of the Capitol Police Board. Chief Dine succeeds Phillip D. Morse, Sr., who retired as USCP chief of police in May 2012. Assistant Chief Thomas P. Reynolds has served as acting chief of police since then.

Chief Dine comes to the USCP with 37 years of law enforcement experience. Chief Dine began his career in 1975 with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) of Washington, D.C., where he rose through the ranks to the position of Assistant Chief of Police. From 2002 to 2012, he served as the chief of police for the city of Frederick, Maryland.

Established in 1828, the United States Capitol Police mission is to protect the Congress, its legislative processes, Members, employees, visitors, and facilities from crime, disruption, or terrorism. The department focuses on protecting life and property; preventing, detecting, and investigating criminal acts; and enforcing traffic regulations throughout a large complex of Congressional buildings, parks, and thoroughfares. Additionally, the USCP is responsible for protecting Members of Congress and their families throughout the United States. Today, the USCP includes 1,775 sworn officers and 370 non-sworn employees.
