City of Montgomery hires new police chief


The city of Montgomery offered Anthony Solomon the position of police chief April 13, according to City Administrator Jack Yates.

This comes after Montgomery’s former Police Chief Jim Napolitano retired Jan. 31.

The vote of Montgomery City Council was unanimous in favor of hiring Solomon, although his start date has not been announced. Solomon is currently police chief of Prairie View and before that a department captain in Tomball.

“Personally, I feel Mr. Solomon’s method of dealing with conflict, his direct experience in the larger Tomball situation and the way that I feel that he will fit in with the present officers within the Police Department will make for a good fit for each member of the Department and the Department in general. I sincerely believe that [department personnel]will continue to be able to be proud of working in the Montgomery Police Department with Mr. Solomon,” Yates said in an email.
