Mike McDermott Can't Even Tell Truth About Campaign Signs

Remember when Mike promised he wouldn't put up signs until 2018 because he thought they were obnoxious?

Well a resident in the area already is complaining about a large Mike McDermott for sheriff sign being placed in a residential area.

Told you this man can't tell truth

Monica Snee What Happened?

Monica Snee was a special education teacher at Parkside High School who for reasons unknown decided to be a drug dealer on the side. Does anyone know Monica and have any idea what in the world caused her to take this path? Did she have a drug problem? was she having financial problems? It just seems bizarre for her at this age to go all breaking bad and be selling meth and pills on the side.

Role Models The Heart Of Modern Issues?

Role Models. This is what this post is all about. A separation I see in the black community, It seems like black youth are shown (or not shown) that people like Young Thug, 50 cent and others who have terrible backgrounds are people they should aspire to be. Dr Ben Carson on the other hand is one of the top neurosurgeons in the world, and yet the black community consider him an "Uncle Tom" because he is a conservative.  This is a real issue. It is an issue that continues to drive poor impoverished black youths toward role models who are criminals instead of educated professionals. How do we break the cycle? can we even break it?

Teachers And Drugs

I was very busy yesterday and when I saw the news break about the Parkside teacher accused of drug possession and distribution, I sadly wasn't surprised. With the Somerset County Schools having just gone through something very similar it seems that modern teachers are seen more and more in the news for improper relationships and drugs.

The cause I really can't tell you, but our local teachers are younger than ever when they get these jobs and with them grooing up in more modern times, it seems like it becomes the norm.

WCSO Implements Body Worn Cameras

Sheriff Implements Body Worn Cameras
The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the implementation of a Body Worn Camera Pilot Program for agency personnel. This program is guided by a policy that incorporates the best practices of the departments around the state that are successfully utilizing this tool. The objectives of the Body Worn Cameras are to enhance deputy safety, facilitate evidentiary integrity, acquire audio and visual information, enhance courtroom testimony proceedings and assist with internal inquiries. The Body Worn Cameras may also be useful in capturing events such as demonstrations and civil disorder and may be utilized to provide impartial basis for self-critiques, field evaluations and recruit deputy training.
Body Worn Camera Technology has been tested and utilized for nearly a decade throughout the U.S. Over the past year, there is an increasing interest in the use of body cameras by police. The use of body-worn cameras has become the accepted “best practice” for the law enforcement community as well as the public.
A great deal of research has been done the use of BWCs by Police. Some of the findings include:
· Strengthening police/community relationships through increased accountability, transparency and trust
· Providing better documentation of evidence, which is more objective, accurate and reliable.
· De-Escalating confrontations between deputies and members of the public.
· Aiding in the training of deputies to strengthen and improve deputy performance and ultimately increase police officer safety.
On July 1, 2015, the Maryland legislature enacted legislation to permit law enforcement agencies to develop and implement Body Worn Camera Pilot Programs so that police officers could begin wearing these recording devices. Recognizing that we are law enforcement professionals, representing a variety of criminal justice disciplines, we saw a need to participate in this pilot program to better serve the public. Please be assured of our continued dedication to service as we strive to improve the quality of life for all citizens of Wicomico County.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lieutenant Rich Wiersberg at 410-548-4891.
