    Message from the County Executive for August 3, 2018

    Cecil County Citizens:Alan McCarthy In the first six months of 2018, there have been 14 active shooter incidents in K-12 schools located throughout the United States. Ninety-nine people were injured or murdered, including adults and students. As a result, 32 people were killed with 26 of the lives lost being students, and an additional 67 individuals were wounded. During this past year the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office, along with other law enforcement agencies, have been working with the Cecil County Public School leadership to assess levels of building security and educating students and staff in the event of an active shooter incident. It is unbelievable to me, that in 2018, we are expending our energies and resources on our ability to minimize the impact of such egregious acts.
