The Maryland State Police is proud to announce the 100th anniversary of its founding as a statewide, full-service law enforcement department that has continually provided dedicated and professional police services to the people of Maryland.
“While much has changed in 100 years, the two things that have remained constant are our mission and our commitment,” Maryland State Police Superintendent Colonel Woodrow W. Jones III said. “We continue to have a statewide mission to serve and protect the citizens of Maryland. The shield we proudly wear continues to represent help and hope to people who are in danger or in need of care. The dedication to duty of the men and women who wear this uniform and serve in civilian support has not changed. The members of the Maryland State Police family are individuals committed to our core values of integrity, fairness and service. They are willing to set themselves apart from the rest, with a deep and relentless commitment to be the best. We are proud to serve the people of Maryland.”
