Sheriff's Office Policies

Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Administrative & Operational Manual

The Sheriff’s Office Administrative & Operational Manual (PDF) is a compilation of directives to provide guidance to our members. With very few exceptions, these are not hard, fast rules but policies and procedures for delivering police services to you. Police work requires the ability to respond to many unpredictable and often, unique, situations. It is precisely for this reason that we have trained our deputies to exercise professional judgment and exercise discretion.

We have provided this Administrative & Operational Manual because we often receive questions about our policies and why we do what we do. It is through this educational effort that we hope to provide greater understanding about policing.
