DOVER, Del. (WBOC/AP)- A former police chief who retired earlier this year is returning to law enforcement to lead a Delaware corrections agency.          

Marvin Mailey's appointment as chief of the Bureau of Community Corrections was announced Thursday. Mailey was the first African American police chief of Dover. He retired in May.           

Mailey will replace current Bureau of Community Corrections Chief Jim Elder, who is leaving the position on Nov. 1 for another role.          

“Chief Mailey’s distinguished career reflects a strong commitment to public safety through community engagement and partnership, and he knows the balance between law enforcement and reentry services needed to lead our Bureau of Community Corrections into the future,” Commissioner Claire DeMatteis said. “As Dover police chief he was recognized for efforts to reduce violent crime by building relationships between law enforcement, residents and community partners.  At the DOC he and his team will leverage that same collaborative approach to support successful reentry and reduce our state’s recidivism rate.”

The Bureau of Community Corrections oversees probation and parole, pretrial services and more for over 14,000 individuals statewide. Delaware Department of Correction Commissioner Claire DeMatteis says Mailey and his team will work to reduce the state's recidivism rate.           

Mailey has more than 30 years of law enforcement experience and previously served as a correctional officer with the DOC.
