Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) Civilian Assistant Chief Carmen Facciolo has been put on administrative leave, County Executive Marc Elrich said Wednesday.
During a media briefing Wednesday, Elrich said he had a briefing with Police Chief Marcus Jones about the matter earlier in the day. Elrich said he is prohibited by law from discussing details because it is a personnel matter, “but the matter is currently being looked into.”
A police spokesperson told MyMCM the department is referring all inquiries to the County Executive’s office.
Facciolo started his position in June 2021. His role as a civilian chief was to help with community-building and serve as a liaison between police and the community, Elrich said. He said he had a number of constructive conversations with Facciolo over the past year.
Facciolo was the police department’s first civilian assistant chief.
