Sobriety Checkpoint


The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint during the evening of December 13, 2017, in central St. Mary’s County.  Sobriety checkpoints are a tool utilized in the battle against impaired driving.

 

Impaired driving is a serious crime that kills three people every two hours, according to the United States Department of Transportation.  During the checkpoint, deputies from the Sheriff’s Office will be evaluating drivers for signs of alcohol and drug impairment; following the sobriety checkpoint, a saturation patrol is planned countywide.  The goal of the saturation patrol is to enforce traffic laws, stop violators, and ensure safe roadways this holiday season.

"America's First"


Just in time for the holidays, a book detailing the history of America’s Oldest Continuously Operating Sheriff’s Office, “America’s First” is available for purchase.  The book can be purchased in hardback or in softbound style.  Along with this keepsake book, is also a paperback book, “St. Mary’s County Sheriffs 375 Years”, which is also available for purchase.

 

“America’s First”, begins when the colonists landed in March 1634; and not until 1637/8 was a sheriff appointed.  The book delves into the next 378 years, and explores the history of how a sheriff was selected, weapons and punishments administered during those times, and how the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office has evolved into the entity it is today and the pride the agency has in being “America’s First”.  For law enforcement enthusiasts, history lovers, current and former residents of St. Mary’s County, this book will carry you through the years and show just how this small office evolved into the progressive and modern agency it is today.

 

The books are available for purchase during regular business hours at the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.  The hardback copy of “America’s First” is $95; or for $100 you may purchase the paperback “St. Mary’s County Sheriffs 375 Years” book as well.  The softbound copy of “America’s First” is $35; or for $40 you receive the “St. Mary’s County Sheriffs 375 Years” book as well.
