Commander's Log

The Commander's Log is a quarterly publication designed to place the most recent Maryland cases (state and federal) impacting correctional facilities in the hands of administrators, supervisors, and officers. Each issue provides a synopsis of the case and an explanatory note as to how the court's ruling can best be implemented in day to day practice at detention facilities.
