Roy "Ted" Hart Jr., a retired Hagerstown Police Department lieutenant, is running for a four-year term as a Washington County Orphans Court judge.

Hart, 64, of 21705 Ringgold Pike north of Hagerstown, said he misses working with people.

"I'm a good mediator, and I think that's what they need," he said.

Hart, a Republican, said he enjoyed working as a security officer at the Washington County Courthouse, a job he took after retiring from the police department in 1999 after 31 years.

At the police department, Hart moved his way up the ranks to lieutenant before retiring. Over the years, he worked in the detective bureau, was a patrol supervisor and, before retiring, was the director of the Western Maryland Police Academy, he said.

After leaving his job as a courthouse security officer in 2001, Hart said he worked as an accreditation manager at the police department.

In addition to his police work, Hart said he served in the U.S. Army Security Agency as a Morse Code intercept operator for three active years in the early 1960s. He is a certified polygraph examiner, too.

Hart is married to Sharon Hart. The couple has two daughters, Terri Taylor and Krista Cline.
