The Charles County Sheriff’s Office Looks Back at 2017 While Looking Forward to the New Year

As 2017 winds down and a new year is on the horizon, Sheriff Troy Berry and the Charles County Sheriff’s Office reflect on the events of the past year and look forward to 2018. Looking back at the past 12 months, several themes emerge: crime and incident response, agency-wide efforts to raise awareness, community involvement, and engagement with our youth.

Crime Numbers: Preliminary crime numbers show that while overall 2017 saw a slight increase in crime over 2016 (during which there was an 11% decrease in crime compared to 2015), violent crimes such as rape, robbery and aggravated assault decreased. “While it is encouraging to see drops in violent crime, we know we will always have work to do with regard to keeping overall numbers down,” said Sheriff Troy D. Berry. “Leaders from our agency meet regularly with law enforcement partners in the community to

Charles Co. Sheriff’s Deputy sentenced in child porn case

WASHINGTON — A Charles County Sheriff’s Deputy was sentenced to two years in prison after more than 100 images and several videos containing child pornography were found on his cellphone last year.

Former Charles County Sheriff’s Deputy Alexander Sullivan, a 38-year-old who had lived in Indian Head, Maryland, was sentenced to two years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for possession of child pornography.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received four tips from a cloud security company about suspected child pornography that was being uploaded to a specific telephone number in October and November 2016.

A Charles County detective tasked with investigating recognized the number “as that belonging to a police officer employed by the Charles County Sheriffs Office,” according to charging documents. It was Sullivan’s personal cellphone.

A state search warrant was executed on Sullivan’s phone on

Ever since the first clue dropped in July, fans have been patiently waiting for confirmation on when Eminem’s new album was dropping. Thankfully, the wait is over. Revival will be released on December 15.

Dr. Dre announced the news on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday (November 28). In the video, we see the same tongue-in-cheek medication advertisements which appeared on the sides of buildings and tweets for the past couple months.

Eminem recently performed “Walk On Water” at the 2017 EMAs. The single featuring Beyoncé debuted at 14 on the Billboard Hot 100, though as an Eminem fan Twitter account pointed out, it was the rapper’s first since not to debut in the top 10 since 1998.

Regardless of the immediate commercial impact of “Walk on Water,” Revival is almost upon us. We’ll see where Mathers
