My name is Robin Roberts and I am the President of the Eastern Shore
Police Association. I come to you with 30 years of Law Enforcement
experience, over 26 of those years with the Sheriff’s Office serving the
citizens of Wicomico County and the State of Maryland. I am married to
Phylis Roberts, my wife of 30 years and who is a retired Maryland State
Police Trooper of 26 years, and returned as a civilian Polygraph Examiner for
additional 8 years. I have three children Shawn Roberts of Delmar,
Michael of Seattle Washington, Megan Roberts of Fruitland, and two
stepchildren, John Lord of Ocean City, Md, and Dennis Lord of Salisbury also
retired Maryland State Police Trooper.
What I want to convey to you, is that I too want to continue the forward
momentum of the E.S.P.A.; now that it has been set into motion. I will make
the E.S.P.A. people friendly for the citizens of the Eastern Shore. My mission
for E.S.P.A. is to continue to help Law Enforcement help the youth of the
Eastern Shore of Maryland and to maybe make a difference in a child’s life,
After all that’s what and why Camp E.S.P.A. came to be.
As President of the Eastern Shore Police Association I will continue to
maintain contact with the Maryland Police Training Commission and work
hard to make decisions that will benefit our brothers and sisters of law
enforcement of the great State of Maryland as well as the Eastern Shore.
As President of the Eastern Shore Police Association I invite you to become
active in your Association. I invite community leaders to join me in working
on an even better way to improve Camp E.S.P.A.
As your President I will continue to listen to and learn from the men and
women who lay their life on the line everyday to protect and serve the
citizens of the State of Maryland and who are without a doubt some of the
finest people I have had the honor to work with, that being the Law
The Eastern Shore Police Association of Maryland was organized by local
police officers in 1958. The purpose of the Association is to bring all
divisions of Law Enforcement together so they can meet and discuss the
ever-changing procedures, which affect our patterns of work on the Eastern
Shore. It is the intent of the Association to unite the efforts of Law
Enforcement personnel. Through contacts with the elected officials of the
Shore and State we are able to help legislative matters pass or get defeated,
depending on how they affect our Law Enforcement Officers.
The Association will and does represent your interest in the Maryland
Another major function of the Eastern Shore Police Association is to operate
CAMP ESPA. The camp which is owned and operated by The Association to
assure that many of the underprivileged and at risk children of the Eastern
Shore have an opportunity to spend part of their summer learning new
things, while at the same time having a good time. At CAMP ESPA we have
riverfront for boating, a pier for fishing, a swimming pool, several acres of
land, and a fully equipped clubhouse, which features sleeping quarters for
30 with full bathrooms and showers.
Any person working in Law Enforcement working on the Eastern Shore of
Maryland may submit an application for active membership, retired is just a
proud title and has the same membership as active. Associate memberships
are those who are not or have not been Officers on the Shore but work for a
Law Enforcement Agency. Your membership would help ensure that our
goal is accomplished. I hope that you will join us. If you have any questions,
please call me.
