Safe Exchange Zone Parking

Under video surveillance by the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office, the Safe Exchange locations are marked by posted signs for child custody exchanges, in-person transactions, meeting with a buyer or a seller for online transactions, or any other reason to meet publicly.

The Sheriff's Office provides Safe Exchange parking at each of its district offices:

  • District 1 Station at 37575 Charlotte Hall School Road in Charlotte Hall
  • Sheriff's Office Headquarters at 23150 Leonard Hall Drive in Leonardtown
  • District 3 Station at 23125 Camden Way in California
  • District 4 Station at 21633 Great Mills Road in Lexington Park

In October 2020, Eagle Scout Jaden Arnold and his crew installed the first Safe Exchange spaces at the District 1 Station and at the Sheriff's Office Headquarters, and the Sheriff's Office then added the spaces to the remaining stations.
