Kundrat, 53, who has been acting MdTA chief for 18 months, was selected from a field of 29 candidates for the post, which he assumed Friday. MdTA Police are responsible for law enforcement at tolled highways, tunnels and bridges, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and the Port of Baltimore.
The head of MdTA's search committee, the Rev. Dr. William C. Calhoun Sr., said Kundrat has "a commitment to diversity and a solid strategic vision" for a department of more than 600 uniformed and civilian employees.
The chief lives in Harford County with his wife of 28 years. They have three sons.
