Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides announced the city’s new Harbormaster, Police Lieutenant Beth Mauk, will report for duty on Thursday, October 20th.

The Harbormaster selection process involved a national search with a total of thirty-six applications from four states.   

“I was pleased to share the news about hiring a new Harbormaster at Monday’s Navy Birthday Celebration where the United States Naval Academy was honoring Women in Service,” Mayor Pantelides said.  “We are delighted to get a person with such an impressive professional background that couples law enforcement and education.  She will be a real asset and I am glad that she accepted the position.” 

Ms. Mauk’s professional experience includes numerous positions with the Maryland Natural Resources Police Department from October 1998 through March of 2016 as she moved up the ranks from Officer to Lieutenant.

While working with the Natural Resources Police Department, Ms. Mauk supervised and administered operational activities for the Marine Maintenance Section and taught classes in Boating Law, Regulation, Citation and Warning Issuance.  During the merger of the Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Maryland Forest and Park Service, she supervised the most demanding district in Maryland which included Sandy Point State Park and the Severn River.  Her background also includes enforcing conservation, criminal, boating, and traffic law. 

Ms. Mauk is credited with being the Joint Enforcement Officer for the National Marine Fisheries Service in Ocean City, Maryland.  Prior to accepting the Harbormaster position, Ms. Mauk was the shift commander for Anne Arundel Community College Department of Public Safety and Police.

The City terminated the previous Harbormaster in April after discovering discrepancies in accounting.
