The Worcester County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) is the primary law enforcement agency servicing a population of 46,543 residents in 473 square miles of Worcester County, Maryland.[1]


The WCSO was created when Worcester County was created from a section of Somerset County on December 10, 1742. John Martin was appointed first Sheriff of the new county and placed his office in the county courthouse. The courthouse (and the Sheriff's Office) subsequently burned down twice (once in 1834 and again 1893). [2]


The current Sheriff is Charles T. Martin.[3]
