Commissioners Approve St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office $10,000 Recruitment and Retention Grant

September 24, 2020

The Commissioners of St. Mary’s County have approved a $10,000 Police Recruitment and Retention Grant, allowing the Sheriff’s Office to continue recruitment, education, and retention efforts.

Through this grant, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will pay for advertisements targeting audiences to increase their physical and virtual presence wherever potential applicants can be found. These advertisements would utilize the video produced using the FY2020 grant funds.

The grant is offered through the State of Maryland and does not require a matching monetary commitment from St. Mary’s County Government.

Commissioner decisions and related public documents are available on the county government website in BoardDocs. St. Mary’s County Commissioner Meetings may be viewed live Tuesday mornings on SMCG Channel 95 or as a replay Friday nights at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are also available for on-demand viewing on the St. Mary’s County Government YouTube Channel.
