The Corrections Division is responsible for maintaining custody and security of pretrial and sentenced individuals. Offenders are offered a variety of programs to reduce recidivism and help them re-enter society as more productive citizens.

The Staff of the Corrections Division have several areas of responsibility, to include but not limited to, the Emergency Response Team (ERT), Transport/Court Holding, Work Release, Central Processing, Classification, Security Enforcement Team (SET), Standards & Accreditation, and Custody & Security.

The Corrections Division strives to meet strict professional standards. In 2001, the Charles County Detention Center became the first Adult Detention Center in the State of Maryland to earn 100 percent compliance during a Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards Audit. The CCDC has continually received 100 percent compliance ratings in all areas during subsequent audits, which occur every three years. In October 2023, CCDC expanded its commitment to excellence by earning accreditation by the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare.

As with any Division within the Sheriff’s Office, the Corrections Division is active in the Community and routinely participates in many community functions. The Charles County Correctional Officers Association holds successful toy drives over the holiday season that grow every year.
