Adeyemi Adeoye

Adeyemi Adeoye was born in Nigeria in 1965.  A government requirement prevented him from enlisting in the military, so he earned a Bachelor’s degree in marketing and a Master’s degree in business administration. In 1998, he visited his brother in New York and a friend in Frederick. In 2001, he settled in Frederick to give his children a safer environment with excellent schools.  He worked in the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office Corrections Bureau from 2003 to 2019, attaining the rank of Sergeant. He served on the Frederick County Human Relations Commission to help solve discrimination issues. He now works in the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia. Yemi became a U.S. citizen in 2007. He connects his family heritage with the Nigerians in Frederick Association.
