A narcotics task force focused entirely on dismantling drug crimes in Frederick County is becoming dismantled itself — a result of Maryland State Police pulling out of the effort.

Four Maryland state troopers have been pulled from the task force and one remaining trooper will leave in October, state police spokesman Greg Shipley told The Frederick News-Post.

    I have no problem with a sworn officer or member of the command staff being the FCSO spokesperson.......as long as that's not his/her ONLY assignment.

    Bailey needs to come out from her cozy desk. She can be a patrol Sgt, she can be a Sgt of investigations, and at the same time she can be the official FCSO spokesperson.

    The previous commenter is correct, former sheriff Jimmy Hagy gave this spokesperson position to Bailey. Why hasn't Jenkins put an end to this silly spending?

    A person who's only duty is to be a spokesperson does NOT need a cruiser. A Toyota Yaris would suffice.

    If I recall correctly, Frederick City Police has a member of their command staff whom is a spokesperson. But he also has a plate full of other duties. This benefit the city because they're getting two for one.

    And I agree, Jenkins needs to cease and desist hiring of his personal friends.

    It's appearing that a few from the inside (deputies) are speaking out in the comments here.

    Shipley says it gets the agency (MSP) back to its roots. When is it going to "grow" away from its roots and start branching out?? It's been around long enough. Going back to the roots sounds counter-productive.

    It is sad to see a strong force like the MSP step out. The MSP and FCSO combined have done great work and i applaud them for there efforts in fighting the war on drugs here in Fred. Co. I have a suggestion for Sheriff Jenkins start taking all your deputies who sit behind a desk all day and do nothing besides surfing the net and doing 5 mins of paperwork and put them on the road and take some of your patrol deputies who are good at busting drug users on the streets and place them on the drug force. Then start Hiring more deputies and not just friends and build up your force this county is growing out of proportion. And i agree with the others here about Sgt. Bailey shes a certified law enforcement officer put her on the road. Why should i pay for her salery when a civilian or your personal secretary can do her job making press relases for a cheaper rate. She has a badge, take home car (huge waste) if she ever properly uses it and throw her on patrol. We need more men and women on the streets of this ever expanding county. We dont need uniformed deputies sitting at a desk doing a civilians job. I as a tax payer am outraged that my taxes are going to waste paying someone in her position to sit at a fancy desk all day when she could be out making every penny of her salary count. I would not mind paying a little extra for a civilian to be a sheriffs office spokesperson.

    What a strange time to have less police in Maryland. They should change the welcome sign to: Welcome to Maryland, open for criminals. With all the legal pot smoking and gunless residents it will be a free for all for all sorts of criminal activity. If your counting on the local law enforcement to help you, think twice, they shoot first, ask questions later. A modern day wild west here in FC. Good luck with that!

    Frederick County and others have been short changed for years, by the Dems. that run the state. It's been decades since Barrack B was properly staffed. We have been hiring Deputies , buying equipment, etc., to pick up the slack. Taxpayers in Frederick City pay for three police depts., receive service from ONE! All just part of this great liberal created TAX HELL WE CALL MARYLAND.

    Maybe, just maybe MSP has gotten smart and doesn't want their names smeared along with the FCSO. Chuckie Cheese is starting a circus over there and he could be the lead clown. Maybe if he could control the attack happy clownlets and get some control, MSP wouldn't have left.

    Chuck is so busy hiring his friends, in useless civilian jobs at the Sheriff's Office, he has no time to make up for lost Narcotics Cops. He does not care if crime goes up, from a bunch of addicts breaking into houses and stealing everything that isn't bolted down. He will just reclassify the crimes, so they don't show up on the Uniform Crime Report. Then he can lie about crime rates going down. He doesn't even have a Warrant squad, trying to locate and lock up wanted criminals. He could care less about protecting the citizens. Sheriff Dim Wit is a poor politician, not a Policeman. Maybe he can find a way to blame this all on Blaine.

    Jennifer bailey is being paid as a sergeant to do a job that a civilian employee can do. (Spokes person).

    She has had this position since Hagy was in office. And is the upmost waste of tax payer dollars.

    And then The sheriff has the nerve to whine about he hasn't the man power.

    O'Malley is simply following the road map established for illegal aliens by obama and calipornia (calipornia, get it?). Stop pursuing drug dealers (illegal aliens), declare pushers and users a "social problem", create a guvmint program to deal with it, create a new tax to fund the program.

    Chuck's too obsessed with deporting
    which the state police aren't supporting
    they say, "stick to the facts
    and get down to brass tacks:
    start arresting the ones who are snorting."

    Sounds like queen Jennifer bailey is gonna have to go back out on the road where he belongs.

    Paying Jennifer a sergeants salary to sit behind a desk and give a weekly press report is plain stupid and poor use of tax payer money.

    Put her in the narcotics task force.

    The "war on drugs" has been fought from the wrong end for the past 30 years and, still, we have the sale and consumption of dangerous drugs. Our society has attained a puritanical fantasy with punishment for just about anything. Drugs are a health issue and should be addressed as a health issue.

    I wish our police and prosecuting attorneys would go after financial criminals with the same zeal as they do a heroin user.

    "The reason state police formed in 1921 was to have a statewide law enforcement agency that could move throughout various jurisdictions and apprehend criminals," Shipley said. "The sheriff's department is an outstanding department committed to local law enforcement. We, as a department, have to stay committed to state law enforcement.".......I kinda think they no longer want Chuckles boy's to be able to travel to different jurisdictions and "apprehend criminals".. because Chuckles boy's seem to think people with Down Syndrome are criminals..and people are tired of seeing their tax dollar pay for murder..

    O'Malley hates the more rural counties, we will probably be down to 10 MSP officers next year. I am sure he hates Jenkins too.

    Although the war on drugs has been an abysmal failure for tax payers it has provided a fiscal bonanza for those pursuing careers in the judicial system.

    "... and are doing what Maryland State Police should be doing...." Kind of implies that MSP has decided that there was something wrong with what they were/have been doing. If not, then Shipley should have stopped with "We've shifted the focus of the entire department...."
