InfoA resident of Howard County, MD for over fifty years, Paul started his law enforcement career as a Maryland State Trooper. Over a span of twenty-eight years, Paul worked his way up through the ranks to Major, commanding the Maryland State Police Criminal Investigations Division.

His integrity, skills and temperament earned him the appointment as Howard County's Police Chief. During his eight years as Chief, he instituted many innovative programs and was elected President of the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association and is currently a member of their executive board. He is also an expert in police procedure and testifies in civil and criminal trials throughout the Mid-Atlantic States.

As a small business owner and practicing attorney, he knows the adverse effects which result from the government's over-regulation of its citizens.
