St. Mary’s County 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 21, 2017, through Sunday, April 23, 2017.

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. Appropriate 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.
