Major Ronce Alford
Thanks for visiting NOBLE Maryland chapter. Please tour our website and contact us so together we can become partners in improving Maryland.
To ensure equity in the administration of justice in the provision of public service to all communities, and to serve as the conscience of law enforcement by being committed to justice by action.
Chief Grayling Grant Williams September 5, 1958 - January 1, 2021
Noble Maryland Chapter Members are sadden about the untimely passing of Brother Grayling Williams. He is a current member of the MD chapter and past President of Noble DC Chapter. Chief Grayling Williams had a wealth of knowledge and experience; Chief of Police for the Prince Georges Comm. College, Yale University PD, DEA, DHS, Baltimore City PD, Pennsylvania State IG Office, and Police Chief of Portsmouth Police Department. He made numerous friends in both his personal and professional interactions around the world. We thank him for the donation of his knowledge and humanity to all those he encountered.
Thank you to those who have made donations to the Maryland Chapter of Noble in the memory of Brother Grayling and know that we will put it to use in his honor. Grayling shared with some of us in his last days that there is a need for a program to bring police and kids together who have experienced gun violence. For the sake of the physical and mental anguish that traumatic incidents cause to those who are feeling that this everyday violence is the norm. The Maryland Chapter will be proceeding with Brother Grayling's forward thinking idea. Please join in keeping Chief Grayling Williams and his family in prayer so his soul can rest in peace.
-Ronce Alford, President of the NOBLE Maryland Chapter
The Maryland Chapter of NOBLE stand with you, your families and communities across the state of Maryland as we collectively navigate the effect of Covid 19. Most of our members and supporters are those on the front line in this fight that has impacted us globally. We share in support of all police, fire personnel, nurses, doctors, military, public works, food industry, and the support staff that have unselfishly given of themselves at the risk of their own personal well-being. Our Blessing of the Badge ceremony held March 10, 2020 was certainly timely. I ask that you pray for all first responders and medical personnel as they continue to sacrifice in this battle to overcome through this unchartered modern crisis.
