On several occasions, DFC Smith provided transportation to citizens in need. While it may seem insignificant, it meets a significant need for the citizen involved, and often their family and friends, at the time.

Castle, DeNeale, Holland, Norris and Thompson volunteered to assist with the Maryland Correctional Administrators Association’s annual conference in June. Without their willingness to step up to the challenge, the conference would not have been a success.
