Montgomery County Sheriff Michael Amato appointed Justin Cramer as undersheriff Wednesday.
The appointment comes two weeks after Peter Vroman resigned the post, on the eve of Election Day, during which he lost a bid for a seat in the state Assembly.
Cramer, 35, has been working for the Sheriff’s Office almost two years as the 911 systems administrator.
A news release said he “has excelled in all areas of managing the 911 dispatch center, from hands-on working with computers to overseeing the engineering and installation of critical systems and throughout the Sheriff’s Office and the jail.
His duties have expanded during the past year to creating and managing the 911 center budget.”
Amato said he chose Cramer because of his knowledge of the department’s computer system.
“He is very proficient in that area and he can bring the department up to speed in a lot of technological areas,” the sheriff said.
Cramer has 10 years of public safety experience. He is currently a county emergency management deputy coordinator and an EMT. He has served in the Hagaman Volunteer Fire Department since 2005.
He also has more than 15 years of experience in private sector business administration, budgeting, cost analysis and large-scale project management, including five years as director of technology for a high-tech engineering and services firm.
Cramer will assume his new position in the department Nov. 17.
