Trinidad Navarro was elected in 2016 as the State of Delaware’s 26th Insurance Commissioner. In this role, he oversees the regulation of the Delaware insurance market and the Department’s consumer protection efforts. In 2014, the most recent data available, the Delaware Department of Insurance ranked 10th in the U.S. in total written insurance premium, and regulated companies with more than $620 billion in assets. The DOI is the largest consumer protection agency in the state.
A lifelong Delawarean, Commissioner Navarro has an extensive record of public service and is committed to protecting Delaware consumers. He served over 20 years with the New Castle County Police, retiring as the Public Information Officer after being elected as New Castle County Sheriff in 2010. While a police officer, he received the department’s distinguished Medal of Valor. Prior to that he worked as a licensed insurance agent. He followed in the footsteps of his father, whose career was servicing the life and health insurance needs of his community. His father’s work demonstrated to him the importance of serving the people who have put their trust in you. Commissioner Navarro put that lesson into action as an insurance agent, a police officer, and as sheriff. He knows that serving the needs of the people is the hallmark of every profession and the obligation of every public servant.
