July 23rd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford joined Maryland State Police Superintendent Woodrow W. Jones III, Maryland Department of General Services Secretary Ellington Churchill, other elected officials, and current and members of the Maryland State Police, for the official opening of the new Cumberland Barracks.  The new barracks is built on the site of the previous barracks that had worn out after 62 years of continuous use. The new facility has a footprint unlike any barracks in the 100-year history of the Maryland State Police.  It incorporates best practices in public safety design and resolves many deficiencies of the old barracks.
