The public is encouraged to attend and participate.

Sheriff Tim Cameron and members of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Command Staff will present the Sheriff’s Office Fiscal Year – 2016 Draft Budget to the Sheriff’s Office Citizen Advisory Board. During the presentation, each Division Commander will provide an overview of their division’s projected needs for FY – 2016.

This year’s budget request includes items, such as:

• A request for Speed Alert Trailers, which assists deputies identifying when violations are occurring (date, time, and speed).
• A request for a Traffic Analyst, who will be the primary person responsible for compiling statistical data concerning traffic related issues.
• A request for a Downdraft Dusting Station, which creates a downdraft when processing items for fingerprints, thus pulling the excess fingerprint dust down into a filter system. This station protects the technicians from excessive exposure to fingerprint dust.
