History of the Detention CenterThe Sheriff of Allegany County has been responsible for protecting the citizens of Allegany County by providing a secure holding facility for persons legally placed in confinement within Allegany County. The Corrections Division of the Sheriff’s Office is mandated to provide for the safety of the inmates placed into its custody by maintaining a humane living environment at the Detention Center, while also providing a safe working environment for the staff of the center. The facility operates upon the following principles:
The physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of inmates are primary concern. A variety of programs are provided to aid interested inmates with their reintegration process.
In order to meet these goals, a sufficient number of trained staff are provided to maintain the operation of the facility. The entire staff of the center are dedicated to providing a correctional program that meets applicable County, State, and Federal standards. Concerted efforts are made to ensure that the inmates’ human rights and dignity are not violated. Captain Roger L. Cutter serves as the Assistant Administrator of the center.
The Detention Center is currently located in Cresaptown, Maryland in the new Direct Supervision facility for which the Grand Opening was held in April of 2002. This new state of the art facility will accommodate 300 inmates upon completion of phase two construction at a later date. The new facility is located at 14300 McMullen Highway (U.S. Rt. 220 south) in Cresaptown, Maryland.
StaffingCurrently, the detention center employs in addition to the Assistant Administrator, one administrative assistant, and a full time certified correctional staff.
Any person who has custodial supervision of inmates must attend a Maryland Police Training Commission approved Correctional Academy before entering the facility to work. This academy runs from 5 to 8 weeks in length, depending upon the location of the academy.
