Residents of Worcester County,

In light of the COVID-19 situation, I wanted to take time to address my fellow citizens and reassure you of the efforts of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office during this unprecedented time.

As many of you are aware, the majority of Worcester County Offices have closed to the public. This closure includes the Worcester County Government Center, which houses the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.
