Sheriff Tim Cameron Selected as President of the Maryland Sheriffs’ Association, Inc.

For the second time, St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron has been elected by his peers as President of the Maryland Sheriffs’ Association, Inc. (MSA). The MSA promotes the fair and efficient administration of criminal justice throughout the State of Maryland by preserving the Office of the Sheriff and by supporting Maryland’s sheriffs in their efforts to carry out their law enforcement, correctional and judicial responsibilities fairly, efficiently and in a professional manner.

As the president of the Board of Directors of the MSA, Sheriff Cameron will represent the Association at various events, conferences, and meetings throughout the year. He will be a primary decision maker regarding law enforcement policy and will represent the MSA in Annapolis during the General Assembly. He will also serve as a member of the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission and the Maryland Correctional Training Commission.

Karen Kruger, Executive Director of the MSA, said, “Sheriff Cameron's selection for this position for a second time is an accomplishment that deserves recognition. I am pleased that the MSA will benefit from his experience and expertise during these trying times for our law enforcement community. As President of the MSA, Sheriff Cameron will exert statewide influence in setting state of the art policy and training standards for Maryland law enforcement.” She added, “This position requires Sheriff Cameron to be actively involved and knowledgeable at the state government level, which will enhance his ability to serve the citizens of St. Mary’s County.

Sheriff Cameron was sworn in on September 14, 2016, at the Maryland Sheriff’s Association Annual Training Seminar in Ocean City. Speaking to a room full of distinguished guests, including Chiefs of Police and Sheriffs who serve throughout the State of Maryland, Sheriff-Elect Cameron remarked, “The Chiefs and Sheriffs are managing during difficult times, and now more than ever our collaboration is essential to the challenges our profession faces. Thank you all for your service, your sacrifices, and your dedication to a cause bigger than us all.”

The President of the MSA serves for a one-year term.
