St. Mary’s County Public Schools (SMCPS) and the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office (SMCSO) fully recognize the immeasurable value of a safe, nurturing learning environment and community for children. We want to provide students with the best opportunity possible to succeed in school and eventually in their life’s endeavors.

The Adopt-A-School Program matches current St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s deputies with elementary schools that currently do not have the direct support of a school resource officer. The deputies, who volunteer to participate in the program, will “adopt” their matched elementary school for the purpose of fostering a positive relationship with the school’s students. The deputies will enhance law enforcement service to their school and act as an advisor to staff. All will work together to keep students in school and improve their opportunities for success.
