Want to help the hard working police officers, deputies and troopers working in Baltimore City this week??Here is how!
The Talbot County Sheriff’s Office is working with Michelle Radau and Lisa Spicknall. We are helping them prepare packages for the officers in the city. A drop off location has been established in Talbot County at the Best Western Plus Easton Inn and Suites located on Rt 50 (8708 Alicia Drive, Easton MD). Donations will be accepted there 24 hours until Friday when the donations will be transported to Baltimore for distribution for the officers during breaks. Queen Anne’s drop off location is at the Queen County Sheriff’s Office located at 505 Railroad Ave., Centreville MD.
We are accepting donations of individual pre-packaged items such as granola bars, protein bars, fruit snacks, nuts, candy, and bottled water/ Gatorade/ juices and baby wipes. Items need to be a grab and go type so they can eat and drink quickly.
Thanks so much for your support of our brothers and sisters in uniform! Sheriff Joe Gamble

Sheriff Mason continues to monitor the situation in the Baltimore area. We are all hopeful that the situation continues to wind down and things go back to normal. We continue to support our Law Enforcement Folks who are on the ground working to establish calm and peace.
Worcester Deputies were called to assist UMES campus police yesterday with a peaceful demonstration and no incidents took place. We have an eventful weekend coming up with Bikes to the Beach and the Ocean City Marathon. Keep an eye out for both the motorcycles and runners on Saturday.
The weather does not look promising for Friday but Saturday should be clearing up. Get out and enjoy the weekend. As always be safe in your travels.
From Carroll County Sheriff Jim DeWees:
Stopped down to see my deputies in Baltimore. They are doing well and being taken care of by the Baltimore Police Dept and Maryland State Police. They’ve been blessed with food and water donations from the citizens of Carroll County and the FOP.
Also, Mission BBQ set up in the lot they are staged in and feeding all the law enforcement officers for free!
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
