On January 25, 2019, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office announced the death of Corporal Patrick “P.J.” Mann, a school resource officer at St. Charles High School in Waldorf, MD.

Cpl. Mann began his career with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office in 2005. He worked in patrol and then in 2008 was transferred to the School Resource Unit. He previously worked at Matthew Henson Middle School and J.C. Parks Elementary School before being assigned to St. Charles High School where he has served since it opened in 2014. In addition, he covered Mary B. Neal Elementary School.

“P.J. was a great school resource officer who was dedicated to the safety and well-being of students. He was beloved by everyone who knew him. He was invested in the success of students and was a part of the Distinguished Dozen program in which he dedicated his time to mentoring a select group of students on academics, manners, life-skills and so much more”
said Sheriff Berry. “

” We are in the process of gathering more details, but for now I simply ask that you keep P.J., his family, his school resource family, students and staff with Charles County Public Schools, and his brothers and sisters at the Charles County Sheriff’s Office in your thoughts and prayers.”

On Friday, February 8, 2019 Cpl. Mann was laid to rest. Below are Social Media posts from the Charles County Sheriff’s Office of the procession.

Corporal Mann, we thank you for your service.
