The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is committed to actively hiring veterans and military spouses of the U.S. Armed Forces.

We believe mutual respect, trust and pride in our organization, combined with traditional values and innovative techniques, will ensure the community’s right to a safe environment.

In November 2018, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office proudly joined major corporations in the Hiring 100,000 Military Spouses campaign. The campaign raises awareness of military spouse unemployment and encourages employers to make military spouse hiring commitments, ultimately resulting in a combined 100,000 military spouses hired by the end of 2021. The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is honored to stand by this campaign and provide employment opportunities to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their spouses.

A career in law-enforcement may appeal to those with military service due to its similarities with military structure and practices.
