Trump admin pick for Chief of Staff and Chief of Police for the US Capitol Police is leaving the position, the White House announced Thursday.
The chief of security is replacing Mark Kornze, who has been in the job since 2009, the president’s transition team said in a statement.
Kornze served as chief of police for the Washington National Airport until 2017.
In his new role, Kornzle will serve as acting chief of the Capitol Police, and will oversee all security operations and the management of the federal Capitol Police facility.
He will also oversee Capitol Hill police, which has more than a thousand officers, and Capitol Hill Police II, a program to support local law enforcement.
Kornegel is the first person to replace Kornza.
The announcement was made by White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who said that the selection of Kornzi came in part because of Kornezle’s extensive experience working in the Capitol.
