Marcus Jones Sworn in as Montgomery County Police Chief

Marcus Jones has officially taken the oath as Montgomery County’s new police chief.

At his swearing in ceremony on Friday evening, Jones was joined by family, friends, and the police community at Gaithersburg High School to celebrate his accomplishment. Jones said taking the oath at Gaithersburg High was particularly special, because his three children all graduated from the school.

Also attending the ceremony was County Executive Marc Elrich, former Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger, several county council members, and other community leaders.

Jones has been a veteran of Montgomery County Police Department for more than 30 years, and worked closely with Manger. Manger—who, in May, endorsed Jones as the next police chief—said he was thrilled to see Jones sworn in.

“I know that he’s the right person for the job and he’s going to make everybody proud of the work that he does,” Manger said.
