- In 1970, the Governor's Management Commission Study recommended the creation of six "Deputy Governors" to assist the Chief Executive in his managerial duties. Compatible functions of government were grouped under these administrative heads, who would serve as the Governors top management team or "secretariats," as they are called now. Governor Linwood Holton's top priority for the 1972 session of the General Assembly was a proposal for a Governor's Cabinet, reorganizing state agencies into six major departments, each headed by a secretary appointed by the governor. Transportation and public safety was one of these six departments. The office of Secretary of Transportation and Public Safety was created on April 8, 1972, by an act passed by the General Assembly. On April 12, 1976, the Legislature established separate secretariats for transportation and for public safety, effective July 1, 1976. On July 1, 1984, the secretariats of transportation and public safety were again combined. However, on February 22, 1990, the Secretary of Transportation and Public Safety was divided once again into separate secretariats.
- In March 1992, after a scandal involving his first Secretary of Public Safety, Robert L. Suthard, Governor L. Douglas Wilder appointed O. Randolph Rollins, a Richmond attorney and Deputy Secretary of Public Safety, as Secretary of Public Safety. Rollins served until the end of Governor Wilder's term in January 1994. Walter L. Smiley served as Deputy Secretary of Public Safety during this time.
