WASHINGTON — Salvatore “Sal” Lauro, the acting deputy chief of the U.S. Park Police, was named the chief on Friday.
“His years of professional experience, knowledge of the organization and strong communications skills make him the right person to lead the U.S. Park Police,” said National Park Service director Mary A. Bomar in a press release.
Lauro will oversee more than 600 officers in Washington, New York City and San Francisco.
He began his career with the U.S. Park police in Washington in 1978, authorities said.
Lauro is a native of Brooklyn and a graduate of Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn where he earned a degree in Aerospace Engineering, the National Park Service said.

IEMA received a memo about Homeland Security’s decision on Dec. 9, the day Blagojevich was arrested, said spokeswoman Patti Thompson. The memo was brief and did not include a reason for the action.
