A Message from Chief Edward Hargis

We are extremely proud of our city and consider it one of the finest in the country.  Located less than an hour west of Baltimore and north of Washington, DC, and with a population greater than 65,000, Frederick is Maryland's second largest city.  With its fair climate, exceptional quality of life, reasonable cost of living, physical beauty, and educated labor supply, Frederick has been recognized as one of the most desirable smaller cities in the country in which to live and raise a family.

The City of Frederick is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital status, military service, disability or sexual orientation. Reasonable accommodation provided upon request.
