Acting Police Chief Leaves MCPD to Become Chief of Laurel Police Department

May 23, 2019

Last week it was announced that the man who was temporarily stepping into the top spot of the Montgomery County Police Department would be leaving to take the top spot at another Maryland police force.

   Acting Chief Russell Hamill was named Chief of the Laurel, Md. Police Department at a Laurel City Council meeting on Monday, May 13 by Mayor Craig A. Moe.

   “Chief Hamill’s leadership qualities and education, his vision in policing, his complete understanding of community policing and working with the community and business leaders is what I believe is needed to move the women and men of the Laurel Police Department forward”, said Mayor Moe.

   Hamill will be replaced as Acting Chief of the Montgomery County Police Department by Assistant Chief Marcus Jones, who was serving as the head of the MCPD’s Investigative Services Bureau. County Executive Marc Elrich and the County Council continue their process of conducting a national search for a permanent replacement for Manger.

   In February, Hamill was announced as the man who would become Acting Chief after Chief Thomas Manger’s retirement began on March 31. It was announced at that time that Chief Hamill was not in contention for the chief’s spot in Montgomery County. He will officially join the Laurel Police Department early next month.

   “I am humbled by this amazing opportunity to serve the Laurel community, the women and men of the Laurel Police Department and the other members of our city team. I truly appreciate the confidence in me placed by Mayor Moe and the City Council. I look forward to all of us working together in helping to make Laurel an even better place to live, visit and flourish,” Chief Hamill said.
