Swearing-in ceremony for new police chief set

THOMASVILLE — Thomasville’s new police chief is eager for the public to share the event at which he will be officially sworn in as the city’s top cop.

Troy M. Rich, who became police chief July 1, will be sworn in at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Thomasville Municipal Auditorium, 144 E. Jackson St.

A reception will follow on the first floor of the building. The swearing-in ceremony is expected to last 45 minutes to an hour.

A number of community residents and friends have been invited. Rich said the event is open to the entire community.

Three former Thomasville police chiefs also will attend the ceremony.

“I’m swearing in my department, too,” Rich said. The chief’s swearing-in of officers is a reaffirmation of their oaths.

Rich will be sworn in by Mark Mitchell, judge of State Court of Thomas County and Thomasville Municipal Court.

Bob Hutchison will serve as master of ceremonies.
