Gary May, General Counsel for the Charles County Sheriff's Office, was recently appointed chairman of the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association's Legal Advisors Committee. Maryland Transit Police Chief Douglas DeLeaver, president of the association, appointed May to the position in September.
The Maryland Chiefs of Police Association is comprised of Sheriff's offices and police departments throughout Maryland who work together to increase the effectiveness of law enforcement in the State of Maryland. According to its Web site, the association was chartered on June 30, 1961 and incorporated Sept. 8, 1961. The Legal Advisors group drafts, reviews and makes recommendations about legislation.
"Gary's vast knowledge of the law and his experience in law enforcement has greatly served the Charles County Sheriff's Office and will be an asset to the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association," said Charles County Sheriff Frederick E. Davis.
As the general counsel for the Sheriff's Office, May is a specially-assigned assistant county attorney who makes legislative recommendations, responds to civil law suits involving the Sheriff's Office and examines the Agency's policies and procedures. He joined the Sheriff's Office in 2003.
