Law Enforcement & Public Safety




I'm honored that these organizations have endorsed me for Harford County Executive because they know I have their backs and that I am the best candidate to keep Harford County safe.


Pursuing A Safer Harford County

Keenly aware of the importance and challenges of ensuring public safety, Bob Cassilly has been a statewide leader in the fight for our safety and security.

During his U.S. military service in Iraq, Bob witnessed first-hand the ravages of uncontrolled crime, only to return to Maryland and see the persistently increasing violence in Baltimore City that threatens the safety of our families and neighborhoods in nearby Harford County.

He has been one of the key Republican leaders in Maryland against progressive Democrat policies that have made Maryland less safe than ever before.

"Senator Bob Cassilly is the statewide leader in the fight to support our deputies and police officers."

-Jeff Gahler, Harford County Sheriff

Cassilly: A Friend to Law Enforcement Personnel

A staunch believer in properly funding law enforcement and prosecuting criminals, Bob works very closely with Sheriff Jeff Gahler, State’s Attorney Al Peisinger, and the courts to make our streets safer.

Sen. Bob Cassilly was recently honored by the Maryland Chiefs of Police and Maryland Sheriff's Association.

In fact, he was the guest speaker at their 2021 Annual Professional Development Conference.

Cathy M.

Retired Police Officer

"I’m a retired police officer, mother, and Harford County native living in Forest Hill. I have watched the region change, with Baltimore City crime spreading into surrounding counties, and I’ve followed Bob Cassilly’s leadership in the Maryland Senate to hold criminals accountable for their violent acts.

We need strong leaders like Bob Cassilly, who will not only keep our streets and neighborhoods safe, but who have worked to strengthen our local schools, lower our taxes, preserve our beautiful County, and create more jobs – keeping Harford County my favorite place to live.

Thank you Bob Cassilly for giving me the confidence that Harford County will be in great hands over the next four years with you as the County Executive."

"There's more to supporting COPS on the street than just posing in pictures on Facebook.

If Harford is going to get serious about public safety and keeping our streets and schools free of crime, then we need a leader with a real track record of delivering real results.

As a member of the State Senate, I fought the anti-police agenda and stood by Governor Hogan in our efforts to Re-Fund the Police.

When I am County Executive, I will make supporting members of the Harford Law Enforcement Community priority #1."

--Sen. Bob Cassilly

Safeguarding Tomorrow's Harford County

In his two terms in the Maryland State Senate, Bob has been one of the leading voices in support of law enforcement and first responders, while relentlessly opposing progressive, pro-criminal legislation.

He stood strong against “sanctuary state” policies for illegal immigrants that bring violence, drugs, and gangs to Maryland neighborhoods, while advocating for more funding, better equipment, and stronger rights for law enforcement to be able to properly protect us.

Bob sponsored legislation that would hold juveniles who commit serious crimes accountable as adults for their actions and legislation that would impose severe penalties when violence endangers law-abiding citizens.

He also has been an advocate of protecting our seniors from fraud, exploitation, and financial abuse by unscrupulous individuals and gangs.

Speak Up Harford County!

Sen. Bob Cassilly wants to hear from youI 

Over the past 8 years, do you feel more threatened or less threatened by Baltimore City crime spilling into Harford County?
Do you share Bob Cassilly's belief that our government must give our law enforcement all the tools, equipment, and funding that they need to protect us?
Do you share Bob Cassilly’s belief that our county government must work in close cooperation with our police, prosecutors, and courts to provide them with the support, equipment, and funding they need to protect us?
Now that the liberal Democrats overrode Governor Larry Hogan's veto of a bill that limits information-sharing by police with immigration authorities and prohibits the detaining of illegal immigrants, do you think that crime will increase and we need elected officials with a strong background on fighting crime to protect our families and neighborhoods?
