Message from the Sheriff

      Some county residents have received in the mail a request for donations from the Maryland Sheriffs’ Association, Inc.  These requests are not from my office; we never request private donations to fund the performance of our public duties.

     The Maryland Sheriffs’ Association is a private, non-profit professional association that provides support and services to sheriffs’ offices across the State of Maryland.  It offers training to deputy sheriffs, monitors important legislative proposals and provides support services to numerous governmental boards and commissions.  It does not receive any funding from the State; it depends on member dues and private donations.  Support for the MSA is completely voluntary.
