Mount Angel Chief Mark Daniel appointed to state board

Mount Angel Police Chief Mark Daniel has been chosen for the Oregon Board on Public Safety Standards & Training, which helps set policy on law enforcement instruction and certification.

Gov. Tina Kotek announced Daniel’s appointment Aug. 31 among a slate of appointees to state boards. The Senate Committee on Rules is expected to vote on confirmation in late September.

Mount Angel Mayor Pete Wall said he was very pleased to hear of Daniel’s appointment and said it reflected well on the city and its chief.

“It is a testament to [Daniel’s] credibility as a member of the law enforcement community in Oregon,” said Wall. “Beyond that, I think it’s essential that there is representation on the board from smaller Oregon communities.”

Wall added he is confident Daniel will help fulfill the board’s mission to hold Oregon police officers to high standards.

Daniel became police chief in 2017 after a 31-year career in law enforcement at agencies including City of Sherwood, Port of Portland and City of Salem. He is also city manager for Mount Angel, a fire captain for the St. Paul Fire District, and a vice president for the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police.
