Elrich and Jawando Hear from Residents at Community Forum on Policing

County Executive Marc Elrich and Councilmember Will Jawando recently hosted a community policing forum to hear from residents about their priorities in the search for a new police chief. Dozens of residents shared their vision for the selection of the new chief during the meeting that took place at John F. Kennedy High School in Silver Spring.

The nationwide search for a new police chief began when Chief J. Thomas Manger announced his retirement earlier this year.

The selection panel is expected to wrap up interviews and select finalists, which will then be reviewed by County Executive Marc Elrich and Chief Administrative Officer Andrew Klein. Elrich is expected to recommend appointment of final candidate to County Council in Aug.
