Governor Rendell Nominates Frank Pawlowski As State Police Commissioner

HARRISBURG – Governor Edward G. Rendell today nominated Lt. Col. Frank Pawlowski, a 30-year veteran of the Pennsylvania State Police, to serve as commissioner of the commonwealth’s top law enforcement agency. The Governor named Pawlowski acting commissioner in July.

“Lt. Col. Pawlowski has demonstrated a level of management experience and leadership that will serve him well as he guides one of the nation’s largest state police organizations,” said Governor Rendell. “I am pleased to nominate him to this important position within my cabinet.”

Following confirmation by the Pennsylvania Senate, Pawlowski will assume the rank of colonel. He succeeds Jeffrey Miller, who recently retired from the force.

“I am honored to be nominated by Governor Rendell, and it is a privilege to lead the 6,400 men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police - the highest authorized compliment ever - who have dedicated themselves to serving the Commonwealth,” Pawlowski said. “I look forward to continuing to expand our partnerships with local government and federal agencies as we work together keep our communities safe.”

Lt. Col. Pawlowski enlisted in the Pennsylvania State Police in June 1978. He began his career in patrol and criminal investigation assignments in the southeastern region of the state. He later held command positions at the Troop level.

Lt. Col. Pawlowski received a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from West Chester State College in 1976. He is a 1999 graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, VA. He is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association, and the Chester County Chiefs of Police Association.

The Pennsylvania State Police was established in May 1905 as the very first state police agency in the country. The agency operates from 81 stations, 9 Pennsylvania Turnpike installations, plus several other locations for administrative and investigative functions. State Police provide primary police services for more than a quarter of Pennsylvania’s population.
