Calvert County Crime Down

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office says while crimes rose just over 4% nationally in 2017, they are down by almost 20% here in Calvert County. In a press release, the sheriff says as a state and a nation, we are facing an opioid crisis.  To maximize our success in taking more drugs off our streets the Sheriff’s Office is working with many county and state agencies.  Through that partnership with the Health Department, Board of Education, Calvert Hospital Medical Center, Department of Social Services, the court system, State’s Attorney’s Office and the Maryland State Police, they are achieving success, but the problem is still ongoing.
