Child Protective Services – Talbot County DSS
Phone Number (410)770-4848; After-hours: (410) 819-4747 (State Police)
Address 301 Bay Street Unit 5, Easton MD 21601
Hours Monday - Friday, 8am to 5pm
Website http://dhr.maryland.gov/local-offices/talbot-county/
Description Child Protective Services (CPS) is a specific social service provided by DHS to assist children believed to be neglected or abused by parents or other adults having permanent or temporary care or custody, or parental responsibility. The program also offers service to household or family members who may require intervention to decrease the risk of any continuing physical, sexual or mental abuse or neglect. The first priority of CPS is to safely maintain a child in their home and to protect the child from further harm and maltreatment. Where the caretaker is willing and able, through the provision of services or other assistance, to work toward maintaining safety for the child, no alternative placement is needed. Remaining safely at home or with family is always preferable to placement in foster care.

Description The Sheriff's Office is the lead agency in Talbot County for the service of Domestic Violence Petitions, Emergency Evaluation Petitions, Peace Orders and related process.

This is one of the largest areas of growth in the Sheriff's Office, and due to strengthening of Domestic Violence Laws and increased awareness over the past several years, this has strained the resources of the Sheriff's Office. Still deputies in the Sheriff's Office perform welfare checks on victims, arresting those abusers found in violation of court orders.

Deputies assigned to this unit also serve Emergency Evaluation Petitions for people who are considered a danger to themselves or the community.

Domestic Violence Petitions and Protective Orders are computerized for tracking. This enables violators to be served and orders to be enforced all over the .

All victims who bring orders to the Sheriff's Office are interviewed and their situation assessed. A professional staff is able to refer victims to the proper agencies that can assist them in meeting their needs.

For information on Domestic Violence related orders or to make a cell phone donation, please call the Domestic Violence Unit Monday through Friday from 8am until 4:30pm. 410-822-1020.
