Charles A. "Chuck" Jenkins is currently serving in his fourth term as Sheriff of Frederick County, Maryland. In November of 2006, he was elected to the Office of Sheriff, the largest county in the State of Maryland, currently with a population of 252,000 residents. The Frederick County Sheriff's Office is a full-service law enforcement agency, the primary and largest of five agencies in Frederick County. As Sheriff, he also has responsibility to oversee the Frederick County Adult Detention Center including Central Booking and Work Release and security for the Frederick County Courthouse, which includes the service of all civil process for the county.

Sheriff Jenkins is a 2007 graduate of the National Sheriff's Leadership Institute. He is actively involved with the Maryland Sheriff's Association testifying many times before the Maryland Legislature on legislative issues that impact public safety, corrections, and law enforcement. Sheriff Jenkins actively serves on three standing committees of the National Sheriff's Association. Those committees are Homeland Security, Immigration and Border Security, and School Safety.

Under his leadership as Sheriff, the agency has effectively partnered with DHS/ICE to participate in two major programs, the 287g Delegation of Authority Program and the Inter-Governmental Services Agreement ICE detainee housing program. He has previously testified before Congressional subcommittees on issues involving illegal immigration. In the summer of 2014, he visited the McAllen, Texas, border sector to view firsthand the surge of illegal immigrants across the open border and the impact to local crime and public safety. Sheriff Jenkins is currently participating in a long-term project sponsored by the U.S. Army War College's Homeland Defense and Security. The program is identified as Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement, a work group of over 80 participants from the military and law enforcement across the country.
