Good morning. Rain it is this Monday. Please drive safely and give yourself extra time to get wherever you’re going. Headlights and blinkers are your friends today! Be careful! Watch for standing water and leaves make the roads slick as well. Okay. Done with all the warnings. But we care. On another note, did anyone else pull out the Christmas lights??? The weather was so nice✔️✔️✔️Tell me someone did😳😂😂 Yep. I’m almost embarrassed to say I did it. Got them out. Set. Ready. Won’t plug in until sometime in December. But it’s done✔️✔️✔️. Have a good day friends and know we are here for you.

Don't forget the #9PMRoutine. Take your valuables out of the car, lock the doors and leave an exterior light on!

A Message From Sheriff Berry:

Get to Know the CCSO: Meet Pfc. Melanie Tyner! Pfc. Tyner is the Criminal Justice instructor for North Point High School's Criminal Justice program. She is also the main advisor for the Charles County Sheriff's Office Police Explorer Post 1658. Pfc. Tyner was an Explorer herself, which led her to become a cadet with the CCSO and eventually a sworn officer. She has been with the agency for 10 years total. Her favorite part of her job is teaching and helping the students. She notes that if she hadn't become a Police Officer, she probably would have been a teacher. In her spare time, Pfc. Tyner is a volunteer EMT at Station 12 and she aids with the Spring Dell Center Auction and Rotary Club Lobster Fest. She also volunteers in community service events with the Explorers. #CCSOPRIDE #GettoKnowtheCCSO #CCSO #WeAreHiring #CCSOMDRecruiting #JoinOurAgency Post written by Sophia Adamo, former Media Relations Intern

Thanks for covering this event!

Good morning. Off and running already, probably like many of you. I love an early morning. How’s your week been so far? Can you share one positive thing in one sentence that made you smile?

Happy Halloween! Please take a moment to read through these important safety tips. We hope you all have a fantastic evening and stay safe! 🎃

Good morning dear friends. And what a festive night it shall be! I love this time of year when all of the ghosts and goblins come out to see us. One time, on Halloween, I got a knock at my door. I said, ‘whose there?’ And the little voice said, ‘boo’ and I said, ‘boo who’ to which the little voice said, ‘don’t cry it’s just me.’ And there she was a friendly lil ghost👻👻. Speaking of ghosts, do you know what they wash their hair with? You know it....shamboo👻👻 And I bet you can’t guess their favorite food! I scream👻😂. Yep. I just posted this😳😳😳 Anyhow, for those going out tonight, we have extra patrols circling around so be on the lookout and wave hello🎃👻🤖👻🎃. Have a good day. Travel safe and know we are here for you😊

It's 9PM! Let us know you're locked up and safe. Remember, the #9PMRoutine can be done any time! #LockItOrLoseIt

Good morning everyone. Did you see the skies last night? I bet the sunrise will be pretty amazing too. Moving forward here’s another reminder to take some preventative measures when it comes to safety. Here I go again. Don’t fall victim to OPS (open purse syndrome). Close, lock, zip the purses up when out in public and especially inside a store. Sadly, when the purse is left open, that cute, harmless couple could walk right by you and grab your wallet out of your purse. Sometimes they distract you by asking a question about a product or they might ask you to help reach something then they strike. Yep. Still happens. If you’re still reading this, how about a purse emoji. There are plenty of thefts from cars that are not preventable so this problem will never really go away, but a majority of them can. If you’re still with me, how about a check mark symbol. So, when leaving your car unattended, remove or hide any valuables. Whew. Totally boring post but oh so necessary. Folks, still moving forward I hope all of you have a terrific day. Maybe tomorrow you can tell me one good thing that happened today. Travel safe and know that we are here for you😊

You know what time it is! Here is your reminder to remove valuables and lock your vehicles up for the night. #9PMRoutine #lockitorloseit
