Homewood Campus Security
Edmund G. Skrodzki, special agent in charge of the Baltimore field office of the U.S. Secret Service and a 28-year veteran of law enforcement, has been named executive director of safety and security at the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University.
Skrodzki will join the university on June 26, succeeding Ronald Mullen, who is retiring after 13 years at Johns Hopkins and a career that included previous service as deputy police commissioner in Baltimore.
"Ed Skrodzki has had a remarkably successful career with the Secret Service and I am delighted that we have attracted him to continue his profession at Johns Hopkins," said James T. McGill, senior vice president for finance and administration at the university. "We were impressed by his unremitting dedication to the highest quality of service. We also were impressed by his skill in communication and his understanding of the important role it plays in safety and security, especially in a university environment."
Skrodzki is retiring from the Secret Service after 22 years in which he has served, among other positions, as a member of the Presidential Protective Division, assistant to the special agent in charge in New York and inspector. Since 2001, he has been special agent in charge in Baltimore, an office whose territory includes all of Maryland except Montgomery and Prince George's counties. In that role, he supervises overall security at Camp David and oversees not only protection but also investigation of such crimes as counterfeiting, identity theft, forgery of financial instruments, credit card fraud and computer fraud.
His first assignment with the Secret Service, in 1983, was also in Baltimore, where previously he had served for six years as a city police officer.
"I'm very excited to have the opportunity to work for Johns Hopkins University," Skrodzki said, "and I'm looking forward to working with the administration, faculty, staff, students and parents to make the university an even safer place."
Skrodzki is a 1976 graduate of the University at Buffalo of the State University of New York and earned a master of science degree in criminal justice at the University of Baltimore in 1987.
