At 11:30 p.m., after an argument with the victim, the suspect left the location. However, he returned and broke a locked door at the residence, then proceeded to assault the victim until others pulled him off the victim. The suspect fled the scene.

The April 2017 Officer of the Month for Precinct 8 is Officer M. VanGosen #5399.

Officer VanGosen showed exceptional overall performance in a variety of areas, leading his entire shift in overall enforcement, and leading his squad in both traffic violation enforcement and criminal enforcement. He had a total of 9 cases cleared, including the arrests of 2 intoxicated drivers. He also stopped one driver who didn't have a license to drive at all, and another whose license to drive was suspended, ensuring safer travels for the rest of the law-abiding citizens.

Officer VanGosen maintained a high level of proactive, high-visibility patrol during the month of April, conducting 59 business checks during a time when there was an increase in commercial burglaries and robberies. He is a self-motivated officer who takes pride in the performance of his duties and his role as a law enforcement officer. Congratulations, Officer VanGosen.

The Parkville Precinct Police & Community Relations Council (PCRC8) awarded Officer N. Moroz #4416 with the Officer of the Year award for the year 2016.

Officer Moroz distinguished herself as a tenacious investigator and dedicated patrol officer throughout the last year. There are two investigations that stand out as demonstrative of the quality investigative work and service to the community that this officer achieved in 2016.

The first started out as a simple investigation of multiple thefts from autos in the Seven Courts neighborhood in February. Officer Moroz not only wrote the reports, but took the extra measure of checking local surveillance video cameras and checking with local pawn shops to see if she could find any of the stolen property. Her work paid off. She quickly identified a suspect vehicle and obtained the name of a suspect. But she didn't end her investigation there. Officer Moroz elicited help from the precinct Investigative Services Unit to further her case. During the months of February and March the precinct was inundated with thefts from autos and 4th degree burglaries. Officer Moroz voluntarily worked overtime to continue her original investigation and tie her suspect in with other crimes, at which she was successful. In the end, Officer Moroz identified a total of 4 suspects and linked them to the thefts from auto that began her investigation, as well as 2 thefts of automobiles and a burglary in the White Marsh precinct. In addition, other units were able to identify the same suspects in connection with numerous other cases.

Similarly, her second large scale investigation began as a simple report of fraudulent checks. Officer Moroz again began a relentless pursuit of the suspect, checking area video surveillance, and successfully identifying a suspect. She could have ended her investigation there, charging the suspect for her one case, but she decided to look further into the suspect and elicited help from the Economic Crimes unit. Working through her days off with detectives, she ultimately linked her suspect to open cases in the Franklin and White Marsh precincts, Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, Howard County, and even to an investigation being handled by the U.S. Postal Inspector.

Officer Moroz clearly has a strong work ethic, and is committed to her role as a law enforcement officer, working relentlessly to keep the Parkville community a safe place for the citizens of Baltimore County. For her service to the community and her determination in solving her cases, the PCRC8 awarded her with their Officer of the Year Award. Congratulations, Officer Moroz, on a job well done!
