On October 8, members of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office participated in the 4th Annual Health and Wellness Fair sponsored by the Charles County Government at Laurel Springs Park. Part of the event included a vehicle rodeo – open to all county employees- which promotes safe driving and complete control of a vehicle. Three Charles County Sheriff’s officers took top place in the police class vehicle skills test:

  • First Place – Pfc. Paul Sady
  • Second Place – Pfc. David Walker
  • Third Place – Detective Toby Gregory

The competition challenged drivers to test and enhance their driving skills through various cone courses. Judges evaluated each competition and awarded prizes to those drivers who navigated the courses safely and without error. Lt. Steve Salvas, Lieutenant Charly Baker, Pfc. Danny Baker, Community Organizer Connie Gray, and EMS Employee Nick Ellis set up the course and served as judges and volunteered their time to make the event a success.
