FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Recongizes Sheriff Cameron and the Men and Women of the Sheriff's Office

The weekly COMPSTAT meetings held by the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office generally revolve around emerging crime trends, but the latest meeting was focused on valuable partnerships. Last Wednesday, Sheriff Tim Cameron hosted a visit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Baltimore Division.

 The Sheriff's Office serves as a satellite office for the FBI Baltimore Division, and Scott M. Hinckley, FBI Baltimore’s Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Criminal Branch, and FBI Public Affairs Specialist Dave Fitz stopped by to thank Sheriff Cameron and his team for their continued support and strong partnership.

Stationed at a satellite office at the Sheriff's Office headquarters in Leonardtown, the resident special agent acts as a liaison between the Sheriff's Office and the FBI. The Special Agent assigned to Southern Maryland operates in partnership with the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) and has been working and assisting with cases in this area since as early as 2004, before being permanently assigned in January of 2012. 

Hinckley thanked members of the Sheriff’s Office for their valuable support of the resident agent and the collaborative working relationship.

“I appreciate everything you do on the front lines,” Hinckley told the deputies, “and you work extremely hard to keep the community safe. The threats facing our communities require more than ever close collaboration between the FBI and all our local and state partners. St. Mary’s County citizens are very well served by this collaboration."

The resident FBI Special Agent is available to be used as a resource for all members of the Sheriff’s Office; Patrol, CID, and Narcotics.
