When Chief Ed Hargis took the helm of the Frederick Police Department in July of 2015, he had three decades of policing experience to draw on. Now Hargis is steering the Frederick Police Department as it tries to grow and evolve alongside a booming city.
The department is incorporating new policing technology, engaging in expansive recruiting efforts and lobbying for a $17.2 million headquarters.
Hargis sat down with host Colin McGuire and Frederick News-Post reporter Cameron Dodd for a special taping of Frederick Uncut. Hargis discussed his early career Camden, New Jersey, his goals for the Frederick Police Department and his Metallica fandom.
