Facebook News, Charles County Sheriff’s Office

La Plata, MD-  The Charles County Sheriff’s Office became aware of a citizen’s concerns associated with one of our officers visiting the home of a family who had been selected to participate in the annual Shop With a Cop program. The citizen wasn’t sure who the officer was because he is a detective who was in plain clothes but displaying his agency credentials.

In the past 11 years this has never been an issue, but we do understand the concern and we want you to know we are taking steps to improve the notification process for this event.

If you ever need to verify information or report what you believe to be suspicious activity, please call our non-emergency line at (301) 932-2222 so an officer can assist you immediately. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend.
