Department of Buildings (DOB) Commissioner Robert LiMandri reports the appointment of Timothy Hogan as the new deputy commissioner of enforcement who will oversee the safety of construction sites in the city.
With more than three decades of law enforcement experience, Hogan will oversee all emergency and safety operations, complaint inspections and construction accident investigations as well as the more than 120 attorneys, investigators and inspectors whose primary mission is to investigate any who might violate NYC Construction Codes, according to LiMandri.
Since 2005, he has served as the chief deputy U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of New York, where he was responsible for overseeing complex criminal investigations, the apprehension of fugitives around the world and the protection of federal court judges and court witnesses.
“This department is unlike any other buildings department in the country, and it is an honor to join such a dynamic team with such an important mission — ensuring safe development for millions of New Yorkers,” said Hogan. “I will help root out those who fail to do so. I hope to build on the agency’s successes to make construction sites safer than ever before.”
Said LiMandri, “Increasing the safety of our construction sites requires smart, strict enforcement, and Timothy Hogan has the expertise and experience to raise building standards citywide.
“Timothy understands the importance of public safety and the need to consistently evaluate and improve operations. I am certain his decisions will make a difference on every construction site.”
Hogan is a native of Medford, Mass., and holds a degree in criminal justice from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.
