    At the November 7 meeting, Sheriff Ricky Cox and Major David Canning provided  updates on numerous issues.

    Here are a few notes from topics reviewed during our discussion:

    to date, drug overdoses total 100;

    the ages of fentanyl overdoses changed from 20-30 year-olds to 37-45 year-olds (likely due to an increase in fentanyl-laced drugs and easy access);

    the DARE curriculum is being used in a few private schools;

    the Sheriff's Department created a tentative curriculum to address youth drug use within CCPS requirements for the 2023-2024 school year;

    8 Student Response Officers are needed to fully staff the public schools;

    the Sheriff's Office increased traffic stops to reduce dangerous driving;

    and by the end of next summer, traffic lights will be synchronized from Prince Frederick to Dunkirk to provide control.

    The Sheriff distributed three quarterly reports that detail ongoing updates. For more information, visit

    Many thanks to Shauna Mayes and Darlene Harrod for providing this news item.

Following full group sessions, the committee will divide into an elementary and a secondary committee where specific family life curricula will be reviewed and discussed.

    CCPS is asking for any community member or parent residing in Calvert County to consider serving on this committee. Eight community members and parents representing elementary and secondary schools will be randomly selected. An official notification will be sent to those who are selected by September 15, 2023.
