The City of Port Orange has selected Manuel Marino as its new Chief of Police.

Currently working as the Assistant Chief of Police for the Hollywood, FL Police Department, Marino, was selected from forty-one applicants in a national recruitment process, following the city’s partnership with the Florida Police Chiefs Education and Research Foundation (FPCER) STARS (Selection Training Assessment Recruitment Support) program. He will be the permanent replacement for Chief Tom Grimaldi, who retired on June 11 of this year.

Marino started his career back in 1995 and has since worked his way up through the ranks, serving as Major over the Special Operations and Patrol Divisions, Criminal Investigations Division, and Support Services Division. Mr. Marino became the Assistant Chief of Police over the Administrative Services Bureau for the Hollywood Police Department in 2018.

According to a release, Mr. Marino holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from Barry University, a master’s degree in Administrative Leadership from the University of Oklahoma and attended the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy 240th Session in 2010. He has received numerous awards and honors throughout his career, including multiple Officer of the Year awards.
