February 2017 Officer of the Month - Officer Keivon Terry
Officer Terry celebrated his third consecutive nomination for Officer of the Month.
His recognition is warranted as he led his squad in enforcement in several areas. Officer Terry led the squad in arrests, and case clearances. He worked hard to keep the roads safe for those who live and work in his precinct with an average of five pieces of enforcement daily.
On February 18, Officer Terry made a traffic stop at the intersection of Reisterstown and Falstaff roads. As he approached the vehicle, he detected the distinct odor of marijuana. The officer waited for back-up, and when it arrived, he ordered both occupants to exit the car. One suspect attempted to flee, but was caught. The second suspect did not follow the orders of the officers and was arrested. When officers inspected the vehicle, they found a loaded silver Colt .45 with five rounds in the magazine and an additional round in the chamber. This routine traffic stop may have saved someone's life. Routine traffic stops are rarely routine.
Officer Terry's dedication to the safety and well being of others is just another reason he was named February's Officer of the Month.
