Dine Appointed New Capitol Police Chief

Former Washington D.C. assistant police chief Kim Dine has been named the new chief of the U.S. Capitol Police, the Capitol Police Board said on Wednesday.

Dine has been chief of the Frederick, Md., Police Department for the past 10 years. He succeeds Phillip Morse Sr., who retired in May. Assistant Chief Thomas Reynolds has been serving as the acting chief of police.

“Chief Dine brings a wealth of experience in security and law enforcement, and I am confident that he will continue to advance the department’s ability to successfully achieve its unique mission,” said Capitol Police Board Chairman Paul Irving, in a statement.

Dine began his career in 1975 with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department and rose through the ranks. He is a graduate of Washington College in Chestertown, Md., and holds a master’s degree from American University.

He is married to a former NASA scientist and has two daughters.
