By MARLO BARNHART Staff Writer When the Washington County Sheriff's Department got the opportunity to hitch a ride into the 21st century, the decision was made to go it alone. The department now has its own site on the World Wide Web and is rapidly expanding its influence and capabilities, according to Sgt. Doug Mullendore. The offer to connect to the Washington County government's site allowed only two pages for the Sheriff's Department, Mullendore said. "For just $250 a year and the cost of my time, we have set up our own website so we could expand on what we can do," Mullendore said.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - The list of priorities for Washington County's police leaders in 2007 includes continuing the push to fund a Washington County central booking facility, hiring more law enforcement officers and getting methamphetamine legislation passed. If funding is received during this year's Maryland General Assembly session, construction on a central booking facility in Washington County could begin this fall, Sheriff Douglas Mullendore said. Maryland State Police 1st Sgt. Jay Resh, the Hagerstown barracks' acting commander, said a central booking facility is needed to keep troopers and other law enforcement officers on patrol instead of having them tied up for hours on one arrest.

An operation by Maryland State Police near Sharpsburg last year prompted two Washington County legislators to introduce a bill during the current session of the Maryland General Assembly requiring the chief of the primary law enforcement agency in a county to be notified before an officer from another agency serves a warrant in areas within a county's jurisdiction. That bill died in committee, but the two legislators behind that bill - Del. Neil C. Parrott, R-Washington, and Sen. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington - are supporting another bill with amendments they say would achieve some of the same objectives.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Morgan County Sheriff Ronnie McIntire likes helping people. And he doesn't mind when people kid him about being like Andy Taylor of Mayberry on the classic TV show. McIntire is serving his final year as sheriff, and has served more than 30 years in the field. He said he will miss law enforcement. He said his proudest moment as sheriff came when the citizens re-elected him for a second term. "That really humbled me," McIntire said. "It told me I was doing a good job. " McIntire, 52, was elected in 2000 and 2004.

Under a blistering summer sun, a camp is under way in Fulton County, Pa., this week without S'mores or campfire songs. Instead, 29 children ages 12 to 15 are voluntarily waking up at 5:30 a.m. and running 1.3 miles before doing sit-ups and push-ups. Yes, voluntarily. The youths applied and interviewed for spots at the camp, which is sanctioned by the Pennsylvania State Police and funded each year through private donations. Connor Johnson, 13, enrolled in Camp Cadet last year and returned this year as one of six "senior cadets" who assist counselors.
