CENTREVILLE — The first day of school isn’t just for students. As more than 7,000 students returned to school in Queen Anne’s County last week they were greeted by School Resource Officers with the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Since it was the officers’ first day back to school as well, they were asked to share their “first day” selfies. Sheriff Gary Hofmann, who said he takes the safety of all county citizens very seriously, said the deputies are there to be partners with the school and students.

It is important that students know they can share any information with the officers, even a suspicion and will be taken seriously, he said.

Hofmann also encourages students who may have an interest in law enforcement as a career to reach out to their resource officer.
