Sheriff’s Office to Conduct Saturation Patrols

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, partnering with the Maryland State Police and Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, will conduct enhanced impaired driving initiatives surrounding the Tiki Bar opening, extending from Friday, April 15, 2016, through Sunday, April 17, 2016.

The efforts include saturation patrols throughout the weekend. Officers will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment, in addition to other traffic infractions. Enforcement actions will be taken against drivers operating a motor vehicle while impaired. 

Citizens who observe individuals who appear to be driving under the influence are urged to call 301-475-8008. 

Designated Driver Progam 

Citizens planning on attending the Tiki Bar opening should designate a sober driver. 

Bob Hall, LLC and Anheuser-Busch, working together with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, the Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse and the Calvert and St. Mary’s Counties Community Traffic Safety Programs are sponsoring a Designated Driver program to be held during the annual opening of the Tiki Bar. The program will run Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16 from noon to 10:00 p.m.
