Upper Marlboro, MD…Sheriff Melvin C. High, joined all of the other County Public Safety agencies last night in a Public Safety Town Hall meeting convened by the County Council. Each of the County’s public safety agencies, including Corrections, Homeland Security, Fire/EMS, the State’s Attorney’s Office, County Police and the Human Rights Commission, shared information about the successes and challenges facing their agencies.

In closing remarks, after his review of the Sheriff’s  Office successes and challenges facing the, Sheriff High told councilmembers that the focus of the Executive and Legislative Branches of County Government on interagency cooperation among its public safety agencies, “…has directly affected citizens because it has been enormously important to the success we have achieved in public safety.” Sheriff High said that is particularly true with the Sheriff’s Office, County Police and the State’s Attorney because they are partners in the criminal justice system, and Corrections with whom Sheriff’s Deputies work closely every day.

Sheriff High introduced and thanked the Sheriff’s Office command staff and the members of the Sheriff’s Office Citizen Advisory Council for attending.
