Gary E. Cunningham brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Department of Environmental Resources

LARGO, MD – Today, the Prince George’s County Department of Environmental Resources (DER) welcomed Gary E. Cunningham, a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the Police Department, as the new Deputy Director for the Department.  Mr. Cunningham will oversee the Divisions that handle property maintenance, and licenses and inspections.

“I am very pleased to welcome Gary Cunningham to the Department,” said DER Director Samuel E. Wynkoop, Jr.  “With his experience, leadership and knowledge of the County and its communities, he will be instrumental in providing a high quality of service to the residents of Prince George’s County.”

Mr. Cunningham joined the Police Department in 1985 and was assigned to the Beltsville Station as a criminal investigator and crime prevention officer.  During that time, he also piloted the first community policing satellite office in the area and worked in Prince George’s County Public Schools teaching the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) and Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) programs.  After his promotion to Sergeant, he served as the Officer in Charge of the Press Information Office and was also assigned as the Officer in Charge of the Violent Crime Enforcement Unit and the Intelligence Unit.  As he was promoted through the ranks, he served the County in various capacities including Commander of the Robbery Section, Commander of the Special Crimes Section, Assistant Commander of the Clinton Station and Commander of the Oxon Hill Station.  When he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in December 2009, he was assigned to the Bureau of Administration and was reassigned to the Bureau of Support Services where he served until his retirement in 2011.
