LA PLATA, Md. (Aug. 5, 2007) - The Charles County Sheriffs Office last week announced that they have named a new deputy director of the Charles County Detention Center and promoted three other officers to the rank of captain.
Susan L. Rice was promoted from captain to Deputy Director of the Corrections Division. She replaces retired Deputy Director Walter Poynor in assisting Director Pam Dottellis, who was named commander of the Corrections Division in December. As a lieutenant in 2001, Deputy Director Rice led the Agencys successful efforts to obtain a 100 percent compliance rating during an audit by the Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards, says the Sheriff's Office. The Detention Center became the first in the state to receive the perfect score and earned that rating during subsequent audits in 2004 and 2006.
Following Deputy Director Rices promotion, the retirement of a captain and the opening of the new annex of the Detention Center, three new captains were named. Capt. Morris F. Gant, Jr., will command Custody and Security at the Detention Center and Capt. DuWayne J. Gaddy will command Custody and Security at the annex. Capt. Deborah A. Dofflemyer will command the Support Services Section, which is responsible for central processing and inmate services. Combined, the three new captains enjoy approximately 90 years of experience in the Corrections Division.
