The Patrol Bureau is the most visible of all the bureaus within the Sheriff’s Office. The personnel assigned to the Patrol Bureau, with the utilization of a fleet of marked police vehicles, routinely provide the first response to calls for police service in the community.
The Patrol Bureau maintains a strong patrol presence 24 hours a day, seven days a week, throughout Calvert County’s 219 square miles. These deputies use a proactive, community policing approach to identify and solve problems at low levels of disagreement and to identify conditions that could lead to crime. They work in partnership with the other bureaus within the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office. Additionally, they make sure the Sheriff’s Office uses an appropriate array of agency resources to combat crime.
