The Precinct 3 Officer of the Month for March 2017 is Officer B. Beckford #5912.

Officer Beckford is a newer officer who accomplished an exceptional record of both traffic and criminal law enforcement during the month of March. He issued 121 pieces of traffic enforcement, including 87 warnings for traffic law violations, made 10 arrests, and cleared an outstanding number of criminal cases, including 2 felonies and 20 misdemeanors.

Officer Beckford handled a variety of calls during the month, investigating each one thoroughly and through to resolution. One call for a commercial theft led Officer Beckford to locate and identify the suspect after he'd left the scene, arrest him on five open warrants in addition to the theft charges, and then to locate narcotics and paraphernalia during a search incident to the arrest, for which he also charged the suspect.

Officer Beckford's supervisors describe him as, "always ready and eager to assist the citizens of Baltimore County." He is a compassionate, respectful officer in all situations, willing and eager to learn more and improve his skills as a patrol officer and investigator. It is for these reasons that Officer Beckford not only was awarded with Officer of the Month, but also nominated for a Silver Star Award, the second highest Department award which is presented in recognition of service to the Department and the citizens of Baltimore County wherein valor, courage, intelligence, and bravery are demonstrated over and above that normally demanded and expected of dedicated police officers.

Congratulations, Officer Beckford. We are proud to have you representing the Baltimore County Police Department.
