On Feb. 24, Sean Tallarico resigned from his position as Director of Public Safety. Sean Tallarico came on as Director of Public Safety in Feb. of 2013, serving the St. Mary’s College of Maryland community for two semesters. His tenure here was marked with controversial rumors surrounding campus safety and debate about a lack of timely warnings.
Tallarico came to us from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania where he was Director of Parking-Transportation; Security Services. While there, he created and updated a new parking program for the University. Prior to working at East Stroudsburg he was the Chief of Police/Director of Public Safety at Moravian College for 25 years. There he created the college’s police department and was its Chief Law Enforcement Officer. Additionally, Tallarico is a member of the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association.
In the meantime, Ed Adams will be stepping in as interim Public Safety Director. He was the Director of Public Safety for the college from 1997 to 2004. Adams will assume the role on March 3. The college will soon begin the search for the new, permanent Director of Public Safety. We wish Sean Tallarico the best of luck in his future endeavors and welcome Adams.
