Rich McLaughlin

Chief of Police

Since its incorporation in 1870, the City of Laurel has transformed from a small milltown on the Patuxent to a diverse community of over 25,000 residents that now encompasses over 4 square miles.  The Police Department has continually provided professional law enforcement services for well over a century, from a staff of a handful to almost 70 sworn officers now.

Whether it's pioneering officer-worn cameras or breaking the mold on cutting-edge training techniques, your Police Department will continue to grow and adapt to meet challenges head on.
