The Parkville VFW is awarding the 2014 Officer of the Year to Officer Jackson.

During 2014, Officer Jackson issued 191 traffic citations and 261 warnings. He also made 17 arrests and cleared 51 cases. He works hard to build and maintain positive relationships with the citizens on his post.

An example of Officer Jackson’s dedication to the community and his profession was a call he handled in April 2014. On that day, officers received information about a stolen vehicle in the area. That vehicle had technology on-board which allowed it to be disabled remotely. Officer Jackson found the vehicle and safely followed it until it was in a safe area before he had it disabled. The suspect was then taken into custody.

In August 2014, Officer Jackson responded to a report of a burglary at a home. Officer Jackson conducted a very thorough investigation that not only identified the suspect in that case but also cleared two other burglaries. The suspect was later taken into custody.

Officer Jackson’s shift commander stated that “he displays a kindness and compassion for victims that help ease their pain of being victimized.”

Officer Jackson will be officially presented with the award during a ceremony on May 31.

The Precinct 8/Parkville Officers of the Year for 2014 are officers Lyles and Akehurst.

Officer Lyles, a member of the Precinct 8 Community Action Team, is receiving the 2014 Officer of the Year Award from the Sons of the American Legion.

During 2014, officer Lyles issued 599 traffic citations, 474 warnings, 51 safety equipment repair orders, and completed 73 field interview reports. He also cleared 108 cases, making 44 arrests.

Officer Lyles is described by his supervisor as “an invaluable asset” and “The citizens of the Parkville Precinct and Baltimore County most certainly benefit from” his “dedicated service”.

Officer Akehurst, a 27-1/2 year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department, is receiving the 2014 Officer of the Year Award from the Police Community Relations Council.

During 2014, officer Akehurst issued 392 traffic citations, 305 warnings, 65 safety equipment repair orders, and completed 27 field interview reports. He also cleared 56 cases, making 50 arrests. Out of his 50 arrests, 33 (66%) were for DUI.

An example of officer Akehurst’s exceptional performance is a response to a burglary call of a Parkville business in June. He was able to identify where the suspects fled to after the burglary, take them into custody, and recover property stolen in the burglary.

Officer Akehurst’s supervisor stated that he has “many valuable characteristics” such as “self-motivation, determination, and leadership”.

The Parkville Precinct Officer of the Month for February 2015 is Officer Hardwick.

During February, Officer Hardwick issued 18 citations and warnings, cleared five cases, and made four arrests.

On February 20, Officer Hardwick responded to a shooting in the Unit block of Benn Way 21236. He conducted a thorough investigation at the scene and worked with the Violent Crimes Unit on the follow-up investigation. His work on this case helped to develop information on, and eventually identify and charge, the suspects responsible.

Between 3:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m., unknown suspects kicked in the rear basement door. When that failed , the suspects threw a brick through the small window in the door. The suspects could not gain entry because of a dead bolt on the door. Then the suspects threw a brick through the basement window and gained entry.

At 3 p.m., the unknown male suspect was seen by a witness as he attempted to pry open a back door. The suspect fled the scene after damaging the door knob.

At 2:20 p.m., an unknown male suspect was seen by the victim as he attempted to enter the victim's residence through the patio door using a crowbar. After he was seen, he fled the scene.

Between 8:20 a.m. February 8 and 3:30 p.m. February 9, an unknown suspect pried open the side door of the victim's residence. Once inside, the suspect took the victim's cash, jewelry and other items. The suspect left through the front door.
