A good and gentle man. He was a very talented criminal investigator who loved helping those who were victimized and locking up criminals. Always had a twinkle in his eyes and a smile for his friends . May Earl pray for us to our loving God and save a place nearby for his police buddies.

Earl and I Met in 1968 when we were classmates in the Prince George’s County Police Academy. Over the ensuing years our paths crossed many times, including the years assigned together in Major Crimes. He was my midnight partner, and I’ll never forget his many antics and spellbinding stories. I had the pleasure of visiting him in San Antonio many years ago! Rest In Peace Earl. Gone but not forgotten.

First met Earl in late 1969 when I was discharged from the Navy and applied to join the Prince Georges County Police. Earl was assigned to complete my background investigation.
After I went through the police academy I was assigned to the Oxon Hill District station where Earl was also assigned. We both were investigators at the station , and later assigned to CID where we worked in different units prior to his retirement, but worked several cases together, learned so much from Earl which helped me when I was assigned to Homicide.
Many great stories amongst the detectives in CID as to Earls investigative abilities, especially with polygraph examinations. Who can forget also Earl grilling steaks on payday evening shift on the front porch of CID.
Earl will be missed, glad I was able to talk to him a few months ago and remember some of those good times with him. RIP Earl !

Worked with Earl at Oxon Hill and became good friends while there. I remember going over to his house with my ex and his ex and having a good time. We went in separate directions, but always enjoyed him. RIP, my friend.

I knew Earl Jones in the Prince Georges County Maryland and he was a great investigator. Earl could take a difficult case and dissect it, taking the proper investigative steps to draw the proper conclusions that would solve the case. He got along well with others and took pride in a job well done.

He spoke to young officers and inspired them to be detectives. Job Well done Earl. RIP.

Earl will be missed by many he was a legend in the Prince George's County Police and Fire Departments. Earl was a well known for his exploits as a homicide investigator and polygraph examiner. In the 1970's and 80's he was involved in many well known cases he investigated. He had many friends throughout the department and they have been reliving their memories of Earl.
I worked with Earl as a Precinct investigator and in Homicide and was a room mate with him for a while in 1981. I have been talking to Earl in recent weeks and months sharing old memories.
I know he will be missed by his family but will always have a place in our hearts and minds. Rest in Peace Brother.
