Maryland police agencies say they may not be reimbursed for costs associated with this week's summit of the "Group of Eight" leading industrialized nations at Camp David, according to the Frederick News-Post.
Federal officials haven't designated the summit a "special national security event," according the report. That designation would have triggered funding for local agencies, Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins tells the paper. Jenkins believes it's not fair and is hoping Maryland's congressional delegation will help.
Jenkins is asking the Maryland National Guard to be on standby in case protests are overwhelming. Information on how many protesters to expect is still sketchy, he adds.
Frederick officials say previous G-8 summits have drawn interested visitors, residents and journalists.
