Texas Public Safety Commission Approves Staff Changes within DPS

AUSTIN – At Thursday's regularly scheduled Texas Public Safety Commission (PSC) meeting, commissioners unanimously approved several promotions upon the recommendation of the Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw.

"The Commission is excited to welcome these individuals into their new roles keeping the state of Texas safe," said Steven Mach, PSC Chair.

The staff changes were made after careful consideration throughout the division.

"We have many talented individuals throughout the department," McCraw said. "While it is unfortunate when we lose top leaders, we are blessed to have so many high-caliber people who are capable of filling their positions."

The assistant chief of the Texas Highway Patrol will be approved at a later date.

In addition, Driver License Division Chief Amanda Arriaga will now serve as a member of the Director's staff, effective immediately.
