Chief Manger Elected President of Major Cities Chiefs Police Association

The Major Cities Chiefs Police Association (MCCA) has elected Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger as President of the association. The current president of MCCA, Chief Charles H. Ramsey, Police Commissioner of Philadelphia, will complete his two terms in office at the end of December 2014. Chief Manger will take office January 1, 2015 and will serve two years.

MCCA is a professional association of Chiefs and Sheriffs representing the largest cities in the United States, Canada and the UK. MCCA membership is comprised of the sixty-six largest law enforcement agencies in the United States, nine largest in Canada and one in the UK. The MCCA  provides a forum for urban police, sheriffs and other law enforcement chief executives to discuss common problems and to share information and problem-solving strategies.

Chief Manger said of his new role, “The Major Cities Chiefs Association has built a reputation for being a progressive organization dedicated to making our communities safer. While most crime numbers have gone down nationally over the past 10 years, delivering police service has never been more challenging. Fighting crime and keeping our homeland safe, while maintaining and strengthening the community’s trust and confidence requires thoughtful leadership on the part of law enforcement. I intend to ensure that the MCCA remains focused on this most critical mission.”
