St. Mary's County, Maryland - Members of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office Patrol and Special Operations Divisions and the Lexington Park COPs UNIT will be out in force on Tuesday, March 17th, for the St. Patrick's Day holiday. Deputies will be aggressively enforcing impaired driving laws with saturation patrol and a SOBRIETY CHECKPOINT which will be conducted in the northern end of St. Mary's County.

Don't drink and drive sounds simple, because it is simple. If you plan on drinking, make arrangements or invite a designated sober driver to come along. Otherwise, your ride home will be to the county detention center, the hospital, or worse.
Sheriff Tim Cameron and the men and women of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office ask you to have a safe St. Patrick's Day holiday and "Like the warmth of the sun and the light of the day, may the luck of the Irish shine bright on your way" - unknown.
