Dale Glass, Acting Corrections Commissioner

Published: 05-31-2012


 The City of St. Louis has hired Dale Glass to take over as acting commissioner of the St. Louis Division of Corrections. Glass most recently served as the deputy warden for the Missouri Department of Corrections, where he worked for 28 years. He retired from the state in 2009. Glass will take over the job on Monday.

 

"We're delighted to have someone with Dale's experience to help us improve the Division of Corrections," said Public Safety Director Eddie Roth. "Dale comes highly recommended by the Missouri Department of Corrections."

 

"Dale Glass has served the Missouri Department of Corrections in increasingly responsible positions throughout his career," said George Lombardi, Director of Missouri Department of Corrections. "He has strong leadership skills and engenders enthusiasm and competence in his subordinates."

 

The Division of Corrections operates the City Justice Center in Downtown and the Medium Security Institution on Hall Street. The division has more than 450 employees and an annual budget in excess of $32 million. It has resources to handle an average daily inmate population (at both facilities, combined) of approximately 1,900.

 

The appointment is provisional because the Civil Service Commission has yet to rule on the appeal of the former corrections commissioner's termination. If the termination is upheld, Glass will be required to go through a competitive process to win a permanent appointment.
