News Release, St. Mary’s County Public Information Office

LEONARDTOWN, MD – The Commissioners of St. Mary’s County recognized Sheriff Timothy Cameron for 40 years of service to the county during their regular business meeting Tuesday, July 7, 2020.

Sheriff Cameron received a commendation from the Commissioners that detailed his service record beginning in 1980 as a Patrolman in the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and subsequent promotions until his retirement in 2005. Cameron would then assume the position of  Director of Public Safety. One year later, he was elected Sheriff of St. Mary’s County and has since served in this capacity for an unprecedented four consecutive terms. Sheriff Cameron referred to his 40-year tenure as “going by in a flash.” He went on to say, “It’s been my honor being in county government and policing in my home has been really special.”
