Tammy M. Brown
Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention
Tammy M. Brown has a national voice on public safety issues as executive director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention.
Prior to directing the crime prevention office, she was chief of staff at the Department of Juvenile Services.
Brown, 38, said she’s proud of efforts there that focused on community case reforms to improve services and treatment of youth.
Now, Brown develops and implements the governor’s Three Year Crime Plan, oversees all criminal justice funding and coordinates all of Maryland’s public safety agencies.
“Crime prevention is about protecting people but also ending cycles that destroy communities,” Brown said, adding that her job is challenging but rewarding.
She has received the Maryland Correctional Administrators Association President’s Leadership Award, a secretary citation from the Department of Juvenile Services and an Open Society Institute fellowship.
