Troopers from the Bel Air Barrack have the responsibility for providing full police services in Harford County. This county is a suburban area, 13 miles north of Baltimore City, with a population of over 242,000 people and encompassing 440 square miles. Duties of a Bel Air trooper range from keeping our highways safe through directed traffic enforcement, investigation of a full-range of criminal activity and investigation of motor vehicle accidents. The Bel Air Barrack was one of the first Maryland State Police installations and was born soon after the birth of the Maryland State Police in 1921. We are incredibly proud of our crime fighting heritage which has endured for 90+ years.

Mission: The Mission of the Maryland State Police is to protect the citizens of the State of Maryland from foreign and domestic security threats, to fight crime, and to promote roadway safety by upholding the laws of the State of Maryland. This will be accomplished through aggressive patrol, investigation, intelligence gathering and interdiction efforts; and by providing leadership and assistance to state and local agencies.

Maryland State Police

On this 75th anniversary of D-Day, the men and women of the Maryland State Police salute all the US military service members who were a part of that invasion force and we honor the sacrifices of those who gave their lives for our country on that fateful day.

During World War II, troopers and civilian employees of the Maryland State Police were called upon in great numbers to serve their country. Of the 201 troopers and civilians in the Department, 61 left to serve in the armed forces.

They were men like Corporal Charles Disney, of the Benson Barracks. Cpl. Disney served in a parachute regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. His unit jumped at Utah Beach, preceding ground forces in the European Invasion. He was with glider troops that landed in Holland in front of the British 2nd Army. Later, he was with the “Screaming Eagles” when the 101st held at Bastogne, during the Battle of the Bulge. His awards included the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, the Presidential Unit Citation with clusters, four Combat Stars and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge.

Among our troopers who served in World War II were two sets of brothers. Trooper Arthur Dobson and Trooper Walter Dobson served in the Navy. Trooper Milton Hart served in the Marine Corps and his brother, Trooper Quinton Hart, served in the Navy.

Trooper Samuel Wilderson joined the Maryland State Police on October 1st, 1939. He entered the United States Armed Forces on February 13th, 1942.

On July 28th, 1943, Lt. Wilderson volunteered for duty as a waist gunner on a bombing mission over Germany. His plane was lost over Germany and never returned from that mission.

Trooper Sherwood Williams joined the Maryland State Police on August 1st, 1942. He left to serve in the military on July 15th, 1944.

Just before he left, he married his sweetheart at Maryland State Police Headquarters. On February 1st, 1945, he was killed during house to house fighting near Luxembourg. He is buried in Belgium.

In the words of Sir Winston Churchill, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many, to so few.”

There are currently more than 400 military veterans who are sworn or civilian employees of the Maryland State Police. Of those, more than 50 are current members of a military Reserve or National Guard unit. Since September 11, 2001, at least one member of the Maryland State Police has been continuously deployed in military service somewhere around the world.

We gratefully thank all those who served and those who continue to serve our state and our nation as members of our Armed Forces.
