  • Just Sworn In

    Today, I was sworn in as a Montgomery County (MD) Police Officer. Tomorrow is the graduation, and I was one of the lucky few who start work the following day (working the midnight shift). I can't wait! I fell like a kid waiting for Christmas to come, even though I know I will screw up in FTO (especially in the beginning). Keep in touch, and send me PM, especially if you are located in the area.

      No, the County has a Sheriffs Dept., as well as a Police dept. The Sheriffs Dept. handles the courts, evictions, stuff like that. The police are the main L.E. Department in the county (over 1100 sworn officer).

        Does the Sherrifs dept have regular arrest powers or only on warrants? I'm just trying to understand if it is like the Denver sheriff....they are not a LE acency they only deal with the jail and the courts..."the city and county of Denver" the PD handles all the LE stuff

          Former MC Sheriff here. Generally speaking, yes the sheriffs do have regular arrest powers within the county...and statewide. Frown upon though, unless it is related to court duties.....eg fugitive warrant, domestic or petitions. Sheriffs work off the same radio freq. as county police and act as backup when needed.....however have a different mission. Same academy, same training, same inservice, same weapons, etc.

            MDCOP4LIFE is correct. In fact, they can argue that they have more duties, as they can be on regular patrol, as well as the specialized assignments that only the sheriffs dept. tends to handle. There are only about 150 at this time, so they are stretched thin.
