Cabinet Secretary for the Department of Public Safety
Mark Shea was previously the undersheriff of Valencia County and has worked in law enforcement for more than four decades, including a lengthy stint at the department he will now lead. For nine years, Shea worked in the Department of Public Safety’s training and recruiting division. He also served as chief of the department’s advanced training bureau and as an instructor in the critical incident training bureau, where he was responsible for critical incident and HAZMAT training. For almost 30 years, Shea worked in the Albuquerque Public Schools Police Department, rising to the position of deputy chief, a role he held for 15 years. At the public schools, Shea transformed the agency from a security division into a police department and was a mentor to many students. Last year, Shea was inducted into the APS Hall of Honor. Shea earned a bachelor’s in occupational education from Wayland Baptist University.
