Policing Worthy of

Frederick County's Future

Frederick County is the fastest-growing jurisdiction in Maryland. That growth will continue, as will its expanding diversity and increasing importance as a live-work community in the Baltimore-DC area.

Such growth must be accompanied by a policing strategy designed to partner with and protect the community. 

Our next sheriff must deliver a vision for change, get away from opportunistic political issues, and focus on keeping us safe.


Our current sheriff has brought us costly civil litigations, jail suicides, accusations of racial and sexual discrimination, constant fear mongering and public demonstrations against his policies. None of that is helping. 


As Frederick County Sheriff, Karl Bickel will provide the increased transparency, accountability, citizen participation and community-oriented focus we need.
