The Pikesville Precinct Officer of the Month for October 2014 is Officer Ransom.
During October, Officer Ransom made four arrests, and issued 80 traffic citations, 89 warnings, and 14 equipment repair orders. The majority of his clearances and arrests during October resulted from on-view and officer-initiated actions.
On October 14, Officer Ransom was on patrol when he observed a person soliciting for money on Reisterstown Road at I-695. He recognized the person as the suspect from two thefts at a local Giant store. He took the suspect into custody and charged him with the thefts as well as soliciting in the roadway.
Officer Ransom's supervisor stated in a departmental correspondence that Officer Ransom’s “willingness to generate cases through on-view and self initiated actions also shows his willingness to serve the community and his dedication to the department”.
