About Chief king and the Gaithersburg Police Department: 

   Chief John A. King currently heads the Gaithersburg Police Department. Chief King came to the Department from the position of Assistant Chief of Police for Montgomery County where he had been a member of the police department in various capacities since 1981,

   The Gaithersburg Police Department is a nationally-accredited law enforcement agency staffed by dedicated men and women who are committed to maintaining the highest degree of professional standards. The majority of the Gaithersburg Police Officers have come from other agencies. This diversity in officer experience has resulted in an agency made up of highly-trained individuals with a variety of special abilities.

   On April 1, 1963, a resolution creating the Gaithersburg Police Department was signed by Mayor Merton F. Duvall. This resolution specified a traffic unit to be created within the Department; however, such a unit was not formed until approximately 1983. Chief David Marstiller was the first Chief of Police. The town budget for FY64 included “police protection” salaries for the solitary officer amounting to $4,000, and equipment purchases of $500.

   The Department grew from an authorized strength of three sworn officers and one civilian clerk in the early 1970’s, when the City’s population was 7,000, to its current complement of 47 sworn officers and four civilians. The majority of that growth occurred from 1986 to 1998 under the direction of Chief Viverette.

   Over the years, there would be several chiefs of police.. It was under the administration of Chief DeVries that the City Police began to operate under its current system of dispatch through the Montgomery County Police. As a retired Montgomery County Police Lieutenant, DeVries was in a position to work with the County Police in a way which previously had not been possible.

   All members of the Department strive to maintain and create innovative programs that are responsive to the needs of the community. Department members at every level actively work toward the goal of improving the quality of life of everyone in the City. 

Admission: $20 for Members and $25 for non-members.
