Lieutenant Wanda V. Green began her career in January, 1983, as a Correctional Officer for the Talbot County Detention Center under then Sheriff Robert Gerlock. In December of 1986, Lieutenant Green transitioned to the law enforcement side of the Sheriff’s Office under former Sheriff John Ellerbusch, becoming the first African American woman to serve in that capacity.


Lt. Green continued to serve the citizens of Talbot County under Sheriff Thomas Duncan, who promoted her to Lieutenant in December, 2000. Lt. Green continued to serve faithfully under former Sheriff Dallas Pope, where she served as the Patrol Commander for the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office. Lt. Green continued to serve as the Patrol Commander and resident expert in civil process issues under Sheriff Joe Gamble.


During her career, Lt. Wanda Green has been a faithful servant to the citizens of Talbot County for over 35 years, serving as a uniformed patrol deputy, a criminal investigator, road patrol supervisor, and patrol commander. In recent years, former Easton Mayor Robert Willey proclaimed February 28th as “Wanda Green Day”, becoming the only police officer in Talbot County to have a day named for them.


Lt. Green’s professionalism, commitment to the people of this great county and willingness to help those in need will be missed by all. Please join Sheriff Joe Gamble and the entire Sheriff’s Office in congratulating Lt. Wanda Green on her well deserved retirement. Thank you Wanda for your service!
