1 America's First- A History of America's Oldest Continuously Operating Sheriff's Department
United Book Press 2017 First Paperback New 
“America’s First”, begins when the colonists landed in March 1634; and not until 1637/8 was a sheriff appointed. The book delves into the next 378 years, and explores the history of how a sheriff was selected, weapons and punishments administered during those times, and how the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office has evolved into the entity it is today and the pride the agency has in being “America’s First”. For law enforcement enthusiasts, history lovers, current and former residents of St. Mary’s County, this book will carry you through the years and show just how this small office evolved into the progressive and modern agency it is today.
