Keel celebrates return to SLED with ceremony
Monday, July 18, 2011

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel is celebrating his return to the agency he always wanted to lead.

Gov. Nikki Haley is swearing Keel in at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy in Columbia.

Keel officially took over as SLED chief on July 1. He replaced Reggie Lloyd, who left with eight months remaining in his term.

Keel joined SLED in 1979 and worked his way through the ranks, working a number of different jobs including helicopter pilot and hostage negotiator. He is just the fourth chief in the agency's history.

Keel didn't get the job when longtime SLED Chief Robert Stewart retired. Instead, Keel worked as director of the Department of Public Safety for three years before being appointed to his dream job.
