Pocomoke City have a new and improved police department. Sewell is doing a terrific job here and hooking up with Reggie and his deputies was a smart move. Happy and safe days are here again in Worcester.

I couldn't agree more! Pocomoke Police Dept. along with the Worcester County Sheriff's Office also assist the Accomack County Sheriff's Office when called upon. Working together for the sake of the community only makes the areas safer to live and play in. What they do can never be appreciated enough. God bless and protect them.
