Morris County Sheriff’s Office kickoff of its 275th Anniversary honoring former Sheriffs Arnold Ladd and John Fox. The Sheriff’s Office has a rich history and nationally recognized reputation. Glad to support Sheriff Edward Rochford who continues to keep that tradition strong.

John Fox, a former Parsippany-Troy Hills Council president was honored by the Morris County Sheriff’s Office this morning in Morristown.

As part of the sheriff’s office 275th anniversary, there was plaque dedications for former sheriffs Fox—who served from 1975 to 1992 and Arnold Ladd, who served from 1947 to 1974.

Fox was elected sheriff in 1975 and served for 18 years. He has battled colon cancer and back in 2011, he resigned from the Parsippany council for the county board of elections.

Fox has served as a Morris County Freeholder, member and president of the Township Council of Parsippany-Troy Hills and is currently commissioner of the Morris County Board of Elections. He lives in Parsippany with his wife, MaryAnn.
