CCSO to Implement New Command Structure for Police Districts

Charles County Sheriff Troy D. Berry and his Executive Command Staff have implemented a new command structure for the Agency’s four district stations.  Under the new plan, Districts 1 (La Plata) and 2 (Bryans Road) will merge to become the Southern District and Districts 3 and 4 (Waldorf) will merge to become the Northern District.

The new plan will designate one Captain to lead the Southern District and a second Captain to lead the Northern District.  A Lieutenant will then be assigned to a patrol shift in each district, managing the work of their assigned patrol squads and enhancing the Agency’s command presence on the street.  The new structure will also increase the number of officers patrolling the county.  “The changes mean that a commander will be available at all times, during all shifts, to help oversee Patrol Operations from the ground level. Ultimately, the change will allow us to better serve our citizens,” said Sheriff Berry.

The Southern District will be under the command of Captain Daniel Gimler, a 26-year-veteran of the CCSO. Captain Gimler can be contacted by email at or by phone at 301-609-6575.  The Northern District will be under the command of Captain RJ Williams. Captain Williams, a 28-year-veteran of the agency, can be contacted by email at or by phone at 301-609-6540. The reorganization is effective October 31, 2015.
