JIM FREDERICKS for SHERIFF

Welcome to the website! I am so excited you trusted me to be your next Anne Arundel County Sheriff, and bring Modern, Trusted, Law Enforcement back to the Office of Sheriff!

After a long election cycle, it's full speed ahead with the job at hand; Being your Sheriff and delivering the best service possible to the citizens of Anne Arundel County. It was time for a change, and I am eager for the opportunity to be a Sheriff in whom our county can be proud. I have a vision to bring renewed energy, integrity, and leadership to the Sheriff’s Office through innovation, and the experiences of my 26 year law enforcement career. 

After many years, limited vision and direction left the Sheriff's Office in need of a leader who can bring about positive change and return the office to the status of a modern agency. Upon entering the Office, there was a backlog of over 12,000 unserved warrants, outdated safety and security practices, and serious issues with internal controls and accountability. I have already begun to address these issues and will have exciting announcements about a new cable tv program in the county, as well as, upgrades in technology already happening in the Office. 

I am a life-long Anne Arundel County resident, life-long county Republican, father and husband of 31 years, who is tough on criminals, ensuring our most violent criminals are aggressively targeted and taken off the streets. We are working to reduce the outstanding backlog of warrants in Anne Arundel County which is currently, per capita, the second highest of all Maryland counties. Finally, I am putting in place much needed changes in security procedures, and program management, to correct a long list of accountability issues discovered through county audits.

I have lived throughout the county in Brooklyn Park, Severn, Pasadena, Millersville, and Tracys Landing. I’ve been married for over 30 years to my high-school sweetheart with three wonderful adult children and a new grandchild. I have committed to serve my community as a police officer, concerned parent, high school coach, and community volunteer.

I hope you will join my campaign, follow me on social media and get ready for exciting changes, bringing new vision to the Office of Anne Arundel County Sheriff. Please click on the tabs to read more about my plans for the Sheriff's Office, my background, and experience.
