The mission of the Maryland State Police is to serve the people of Maryland and those who visit our State through purposed policing that protects our citizens, prevents criminal acts and traffic crashes, and provides the highest quality of law enforcement services available anywhere. This is accomplished through a network of local barracks and specialized units working in consultation and cooperation with allied public safety agencies to address issues impacting public safety in Maryland and each jurisdiction through an inter-jurisdictional strategy.

The Maryland State Police – Salisbury Barrack strives each day to fulfill our mission all the while remaining focused on our core values of integrity, fairness and service. In doing so, Troopers were able to accomplish the following during the month of April 2019;

We will always aim for 100% accuracy, and be consistent in how we interpret and implement state policies and procedures.

Wow. Really? I can’t believe is just read this line “Troopers of the MSP Salisbury Barrack have set the bar in trying to be truthful and transparent in an effort to advance a culture of honesty, clarity and trust”. I can not believe they said that’s Troopers are TRYING to be honest. You either ARE or you AREN’T honest. Every defense attorney in town should print that out and use it as a defense for their client. They should get up in court and ask the Trooper “is his a case where you were TRYING to be honest or one where you just didn’t make it to being completely honest and you fudged the rest”? Unbelievable that MSP would actually say that about their own personnel. I am truly shocked.

Those numbers are pretty low. What's the purpose of having the MSP in Wicomico County and wasting the millions of tax dollars if that is all we are getting out of them.

What a waste!
