NEW CASTLE — Delaware River and Bay Authority officials on Tuesday announced the promotion of Wayne E. McFadden to serve as the agency’s new deputy police administrator, with the rank of lieutenant colonel.

Prior to his promotion, Mr. McFadden was the department’s chief of staff, with the rank of captain.

Lt. Colonel McFadden, who has more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, officially began his duties on Jan. 3.

“I appreciate executive management’s faith in my abilities to help lead and manage the Delaware River and Bay Authority’s nationally accredited police department,” said Lt. Col. McFadden. “Public service is an important part of my career, and this is a great opportunity to use the experience, knowledge and leadership skills that I’ve gained during my law enforcement career to make a difference.”

The deputy police administrator, the second-highest ranking officer in the department, serves as the primary advisor to the police administrator regarding police practices and operations.
