Governor Mead appoints interim Director of Office of Homeland Security
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The current Director of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, Joe Moore, is stepping down to become the U.S. Marshal for Wyoming. To ensure continuity in leadership for this important office Governor Matt Mead is announcing that Larry Majerus will be the interim Director of the Office of Homeland Security.
“I want to thank Joe Moore for his service to the state and I am also appreciative that Larry Majerus is ready to step forward and take over this agency,” Governor Mead says.
Majerus has served as the Deputy Director of the Office of Homeland Security for eight years, and prior to that he was the police chief in Douglas.
“Serving in the public safety arena has been my life’s work. It is truly an honor to have an opportunity to continue that service,” Majerus says.
Governor Mead will work on finding a permanent director, but says he feels the Office of Homeland Security is in good hands until that decision is made.
The mission of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) is to prepare, train, prevent, respond to, and recover from natural/man-made crisis or disasters to include terrorist threats and attacks. The office provides assistance and support to statewide responder agencies as they either experience or respond to these events.
