Metro 交通警察 Department
Chief, Metro 交通警察
Chief 迈克尔Anzallo was appointed to lead MTPD on February 2, 2022, and had served as the interim chief of police since August 2021. He has helped steer the department through pandemic-related challenges with an emphasis on community policing throughout the region.

Prior to joining MTPD as assistant police chief in 2018, Anzallo worked as a Metropolitan police officer, rising through the ranks, and bringing more than 30 years of policing experience in the region to the role.
