The Administrative Services Division is comprised of several different units and areas including Fleet Management, Professional Standards, Central Records, Human Resources, Property & Evidence, Civil Processing Unit, Warrants, Court Security Unit and the Community Resources Unit. This division helps to fulfill the Sheriff’s Office mission. The goal of the Administrative Services Division is to provide essential support for the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office and the community.
Professional Standards provides the Sheriff’s Office with the highest quality personnel, training, resources and standards to improve the delivery of police services. Professional Standard’s major function is receiving, processing, and investigating complaints made against members of the Sheriff’s Office. It is essential that all allegations of misconduct are thoroughly and objectively investigated to assure the public that official misconduct will not be tolerated. The Cecil County Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing quality, responsive service in its efforts to work in partnership with the community to improve the quality of life in Cecil County.
The Cecil County Sheriff’s Office utilizes polygraph examinations in criminal investigations, internal affairs inquiries and pre-employment selection processes. Because employees of the Sheriff’s Office have access to sensitive, even protected information, and they hold positions of trust in the law enforcement community, it is imperative for the Sheriff’s Office to hire only those applicants that display high integrity. The Administrative Services Division is responsible for conducting background investigations on potential employees to ensure that the Sheriff's Office hires only the best-qualified applicants into positions of trust. A polygraph examination is an integral component of this investigative process. Additionally, polygraph examinations are used in conjunction with criminal investigations and internal affairs
inquiries to verify the truthfulness of subjects' statements.
