Frederick County Sheriff's Office
The Frederick County Sheriff's Office exists to serve the community. Service to our community is our primary responsibility. We understand that we are one of the few agencies of government that never closes, and therefore, may be called upon to perform many different tasks for the community. If we are unable to provide a requested service, we will recommend an appropriate action or agency. We will always strive to professionally and enthusiastically respond to the community's needs.

In fulfilling our mission, we need the support of our citizens, elected representatives, and city officials in order to provide the quality of service our values commit us to providing.
