President's Message - Sheriff Mike Evans

It is my honor to be the incoming President of the Maryland Sheriff’s Association. I would like to thank outgoing President, Sheriff Doug Mullendore for his leadership and commitment over the past year. I would like to congratulate incoming Maryland Chiefs of Police Association President, Chief Ed Hargis. I look forward to working with Chief Hargis on the many issues and challenges that our Associations and the Maryland law enforcement community will face in the coming year.

I would like to thank all of the members of the Maryland Sheriff’s Association for your commitment and contributions to our profession and the citizens of Maryland. We in law enforcement face many challenges to accomplishing our mission, but as history has proven, together we can and will overcome these challenges.  We know that we will face renewed efforts to legislate the course and direction of law enforcement, often in  ways contrary to what we know best serves and protects our communities. We will work collaboratively with our communities and our Legislators to seek reasonable solutions to the law enforcement issues and concerns at hand. 

I look forward to the future and take comfort in knowing that Maryland’s law enforcement professionals are some of the best trained and equipped in the country. Every day, I challenge my staff to think outside of the box and find ways to do things better. I ask the same of you



Sheriff Mike Evans
President, Maryland Sheriffs’ Association
