Message from President Ronce Alford

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.

                                                                                                                                                           Pres Ronce Alford

Our Mission:

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.


On behalf of the NOBLE Maryland Chapter Executive Board, we would like to extend our congratulations to the NOBLE Maryland Chapter President Captain Ronce Alford who will be promoted to the rank of Major of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.  He will go from commanding the BWI Airport Detachment to being the Commander of the Patrol Division.  The promotion ceremony will be at the MDTA Police Headquarters, 4330 Broening Highway, Baltimore, MD 21222 on March 11, 2020 at 5:30pm.  Congratulations and much success in your promotion and assignment.
