Eastern Shore Undercover has become one of the most utilized social media pages, for news and information, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset County, as well as many folks, who utilize our information from outside our area, that have family and friends on the shore, such as those with children attending Salisbury University and UMES. Therefore, we must inform you of our policy on how we will operate to keep our social media presence clean and appealing to everyone.

At no time will ever fabricate or make up a story to post on Eastern Shore Undercover’s Social Media pages. What you read about are the legit calls that our Police, Fire, and EMS crews are being dispatched to.
REMOVAL OF POSTS
There are many times when an individual will ask us to take down a post. Our policy is firm on this matter, we do not take down posts. When we first started Eastern Shore Undercover, we took down a few posts, and that caused people to accuse us of hiding calls for service.
It isn’t fair for us to take down some calls, and not others, therefore, we do not take down ANY calls for any reason unless requested to do so by law enforcement or government agencies.
Safety for everyone is our #1 priority. We will not tolerate any comments that are threatening or that may cause harm to anyone on our platforms. We will immediately remove any comment considered a threat, and the person who made that comment will be immediately removed from our social media pages. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Any comments that threaten a follower on our page or that have the potential to intimidate or silence another individual on any of our social media pages will be removed, and the person that made the comment will be banned from all Eastern Shore Undercover social media pages.
Eastern Shore Undercover prioritizes privacy; therefore, we will never post an exact address, personal information, or material that could violate someone’s privacy. At no time will anyone’s private information be released on this page unless it is provided by a government agency in an official capacity and able to be verified.

Eastern Shore Undercover believes that all followers of our page are equal in dignity and rights. We expect and require that people respect the dignity of others and not harass or degrade others in any way, shape, or form. We allow people to speak their minds and have a location to express their opinions however we will not allow individuals to get engaged in vigorous arguments and become derogatory with each other.
Therefore, we ask that everyone be professional and conduct yourselves in a professional manner. If we notice that you are being rude towards others or degrading in any way, you will be asked to stop, and may be removed from Eastern Shore Undercover.

Eastern Shore Undercover is a platform for all races and nationalities. Hatred towards anyone on this page will result in you being removed from the page.
UPDATES ON SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS AND NEWS ARTICLES
One of the most frequent questions and messages that we get asked is about updates. We all know we want an ending and an update to each of these incidents, but unfortunately, that doesn’t happen in the real world.
We do our best to update each post however, there are times when that information just isn’t available. We ask that you please refrain from messaging us, asking for updates because it takes too much time to stop and reply to each message.
When we have an update, it will ALWAYS be posted in the original post.
LINKING AND URL’S ARE NOT PERMITTED
Eastern Shore Undercover does not permit linking of other pages or URL’s on our Social Media pages. We can not verify the information that is contained within these URL’s and simply don’t have the time to verify each article, so please don’t post any links, no matter what they are for or what page they are from!
COMMENTS HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH ORIGINAL POST WILL BE REMOVED
While many of you may think posting some things are funny and humorous, it creates problems for Eastern Shore Undercover. For example, if we post a “dumpster fire” and you comment about a current or previous President of the United States, it causes our page headaches with people arguing, so it is not allowed. Please don’t do it!
PRO-LAW ENFORCEMENT POLICY
We are a pro-law enforcement business and therefore, we do not allow anyone to speak negatively about law enforcement. There are no exceptions. They type of negativity spreads like wildfire and we won’t allow that on our page. If your comments are negative toward law enforcement, you will be removed from all social media platforms of Eastern Shore Undercover.
