I congratulate Matthew Verderosa on his appointment as our next Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police. He has served with the Capitol Police for more than 25 years and has an extensive background in leadership and command positions within the force. His work serving the entire Congressional community, from Members, to staff, to the general public, has come during some of the most significant periods of change in our system. I know those experiences will serve him well as the Capitol Police adapt to our community's security threats.

Wasserman Schultz Statement on Matthew Verderosa Being Named Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23), the Ranking Member of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee, issued the following statement today after Assistant Chief Matthew Verderosa was named Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police:

“I congratulate Matthew Verderosa on his appointment as our next Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police. He has served with the Capitol Police for more than 25 years and has an extensive background in leadership and command positions within the force. His work serving the entire Congressional community, from Members, to staff, to the general public, has come during some of the most significant periods of change in our system. I know those experiences will serve him well as the Capitol Police adapt to our community’s security threats.

“I also want to commend outgoing Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine on his service and dedication to the safety of our Congressional community. He has worked hard to ensure the safety of all who use and visit the Capitol Complex, and for that I am very grateful to him. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with him and I wish him and his family all the best.”
