Allegany County, Maryland contracted with Evergreen Solutions to conduct a comprehensive compensation study and analysis for the Office of the Sheriff. The Office of the Sheriff included the primary functional areas of Road Patrol and Correction Deputies at the county correctional facility. Evergreen Solutions understood that the Office of the Sheriff faced competitive pressure from other area law enforcement agencies and is designing a salary survey instrument for distribution to an approved list of local peers. This survey took into account total compensation, including supplemental pay, insurance benefits, retirement, leave, and other tangible benefits.
The results of this survey and the subsequently prepared report provided the County with recommendations designed to improve their competitive position and ability to recruit the best and brightest available persons for these key areas.
