A leader of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office ended a more than 30-year tenure this week.

“On behalf of Sheriff Rob Streck and the entire Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, we want to congratulate Chief Deputy Wilson on his remarkable career and wish him a well-deserved retirement filled with happiness, relaxation, and cherished moments with his loved ones,” the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office shared on social media Thursday morning.

In all, Wilson served 32 years at the sheriff’s office and 36 years in Montgomery County.

Wilson joined the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in 1991. Prior to joining the sheriff’s office he worked for the Board of County Commissioners’ security force as a sergeant for three years.

Wilson was promoted to the rank of sergeant at the sheriff’s office in 1998, and in 2005 he was promoted to the rank of captain. Three years later, he became a major at the sheriff’s office. He began serving the office as its chief deputy in 2019.

Wilson is the first African American to be appointed to hold the chief deputy title in Montgomery County, according to the sheriff’s office.
