To Receive Emergency Notifications, Road Closures, Traffic Alerts- Download our new ‘Sheriff’s Office App’

News Release, Calvert County Sheriff’s Office

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) invites you to download our new Sheriff’s Office Mobile App. CCSO will no longer be using the NIXLE alert system, therefore citizens will no longer receive NIXLE alerts through email or text.

The agency will be utilizing one platform to access road closures, traffic alerts and cameras, weather advisories, press releases, the county’s most wanted, CCSO social media, community resources, and much more. If you were a former NIXLE subscriber and want to continue to receive CCSO alerts or a new user wishing to receive CCSO alerts download the app today by visiting https://apps.myocv.com/share/a39520678 .   

The app is available as a free download from the iPhone and Android app stores.   

This app includes a ‘Submit a Tip’ feature which enables you to submit a crime tip directly to the Sheriff’s Office. Your tip – sent anonymously or with your contact information, along with photos – is confidential.  App users are asked to submit tips regarding ongoing investigations. However, you should call 911 in the case of an emergency.

Scroll through the list of Calvert County’s ‘Most Wanted’ fugitives; photos, details, and charges are listed. If you encounter any of these fugitives, do not attempt to apprehend them; instead use the app’s Submit a Tip feature to send anonymous tips to the Sheriff’s Office.

Under ‘Inmate Information’, search for incarcerated inmates, correctional facility visitation schedule and rules, inmate mail and phone information, commissary account deposits, and VINE/Victim Notification. 

Feel free to share the app with family and friends by clicking in the top right corner of the app on the Settings icon (Share Our App). For any questions regarding The Sheriff’s Office App, please contact Public Information Officer K. Leitch at (443) 624-8404.
