Calvert County Sheriff’s Office via Facebook

Prince Frederick, MD- The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Maryland State Police, will be conducting saturation patrols throughout Calvert County on Saturday, June 29, 2019, and Saturday, July 6, 2019. This traffic safety initiative is an effort to crack down on impaired drivers and those driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Law enforcement officers will also be checking for other traffic infractions.

The Sheriff’s Office recognizes that advance notification of saturation patrols gives drivers the opportunity to make better decisions and helps to prevent and deter impaired driving.

Maryland has a zero tolerance law which means that individuals under the age of 21 are subject to arrest and license suspension or revocation for any amount of alcohol in their blood. For those of legal drinking age, Maryland’s alcohol limit is .08, which can be caused by consuming as little as one drink over a one-hour period. If you plan on drinking, make arrangements or invite a designated sober driver to come along or use a rideshare program. Sheriff Mike Evans and the men and women of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office wish you a safe and Happy 4th of July holiday.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
