A familiar face around Cobb County has been tapped to serve as interim public safety director. County manager Rob Hosack has named Fire Chief Randy Crider to the position, which was vacant due to the resignation of Mike Register due to family matters. Hosack approached Crider last week about temporarily serving in the role since he performed the same duties after Sam Heaton retired in March.“We decided to capitalize on his leadership again this time,” Hosack said.Register was appointed by the Board of Commissioners in April to succeed Heaton as public safety director after serving nearly two years as Cobb’s police chief. Crider, whose salary is $154,701, said he hopes to continue Register’s mission of building coalitions with various community groups in Cobb.“The community has to be involved in all of public safety for us to be effective in our community because of the environment we live in these days,” he said.
