Who We Are

Our membership is a small but dynamic group of spouses, family, friends and community members who proudly support our local and state-wide law enforcement members.  The Auxiliary meets the second week in September at the annual Maryland Chiefs of Police Association & Maryland Sheriff's Association Professional Development Seminar for law enforcement executives in Ocean City, Maryland.  Auxiliary membership grants members the ability to attend the Auxiliary business meeting, Auxiliary targeted training sessions, the Auxiliary luncheon, Bingo, networking and support with a lot of fun and laughter thrown in to balance it all out.  Our annual membership fee is $30 which, in addition to the above mentioned benefits, also includes all Auxiliary activities and events, membership support, networking opportunities, training for your local agency/department upon request and a registration gift upon check-in.  Please see below for this year's agenda, as well as an opportunity to join the Auxiliary and contact information.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We sincerely hope you will consider joining us at the 2017 Professional Development Seminar.

 Auxiliary Speakers/Presentations

Elizabeth Hansen

Managing the Front Line at Home

Being the spouse/partner, family member or loved one of a law-enforcement member can present some unique challenges.  Through a lively presentation and supportive group discussion, Betsy will offer some insight on those challenges and provide techniques for holistic self-care, stress-management for both individuals and families as well as coping skills to navigate those unique family situations.

 Paul Butler

Leadership for a Lifetime:  How the Past Prepares Us for the Future

He speaks from the heart and has a wonderful message for anyone who sits in his audience.  His presentation stresses that family is the foundation of everything that a law enforcement officer does. To an officer's family they are: mom, dad, son, daughter, sister or brother, not officer, deputy, chief or sheriff and he knows that it is difficult not to bring the job home.  He reminds them that they were Mr., Mrs. or Ms. before they wore the uniform and will continue to be that person long after retirement.  He is a compelling speaker who highlights the power of being a good person and is guaranteed to make you laugh throughout his presentation.  You will not want to miss a word!
