A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), will arrive on August 10 to examine all aspects of the Baltimore County Police Department’s policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services, Chief James W. Johnson announced today.

Verification by the team that the Baltimore County Police Department meets the Commission’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of public safety professional excellence, he said.

Public Information Session

As part of the on-site assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on August 11 at 6 p.m. The session will be conducted in the Baltimore County Public Safety Building located at 700 East Joppa Road, Towson, Maryland 21286.

If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would like to provide comments to the assessment team, he or she may do so by telephone. The public may call 410-887-4709 on August 11 between 2 and 4 p.m.

Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA Standards. A copy of the standards is available at the Baltimore County Police Department – Planning and Research Section, 700 East Joppa Road, Towson, Maryland 21286. Local contact is Captain Lisa Hannon at 410-887-2260.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Baltimore County Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia 20155.

Professional Excellence

“The Baltimore County Police Department has to comply with 482 standards in order to gain accredited status,” Chief Johnson said. “Maintaining these standards demonstrates the Department’s commitment to professional excellence in providing law enforcement services to all those who live, visit or work in Baltimore County.”

The CALEA Assessment Program Manager for the Baltimore County Police Department is Ms. Karen Shepard. The assessment team is composed of public safety practitioners from similar, but out-of-state agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other locations where compliance can be witnessed.

The assessors are Team Leader Mr. Robert Johnson, retired Lieutenant Colonel, Illinois State Police; and Team Member Mr. Samuel Farina, retired Deputy Chief of Operations, Rochester Police Department.

Once the CALEA Assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status.

Accreditation is for three years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.

For more information regarding the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. please write the Commission at 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia 20155; or call (703) 352-4225 or email calea@calea.org.

Photo of Dorothy Grubbs, missing from the North Point area.The boyfriend of a North Point woman reported missing Saturday was arrested on Merritt Boulevard this morning on an open warrant for a weapons violation. The woman, Dorothy Iris Grubb, 60, of the 1700 block of Manor Road, 21222, remains missing.

Clyde Campbell, 53, also of the Manor Road address, is in police custody and has not yet appeared before a court commissioner on the weapons violation, which is unrelated to the missing persons case. Police want to talk to Campbell to see if he has information that may help them find Dorothy Grubb.

Campbell's 14-year-old son was with him at the time of the arrest.

Campbell was driving a white Ford F-150 pickup truck when he was arrested.

Grubb's adult daughter called police Saturday at 6:30 p.m. to report that she had not seen her mother since Thursday evening and was concerned for her welfare because of a history of domestic violence with Campbell. The daughter said she had not seen Campbell, either.

Police began a missing persons investigation and on Sunday publicized the case, asking for the public's help in locating Grubb. Police have searched the Manor Road home, looking for information that might help them find Dorothy Grubb. The investigation is active and ongoing. Police consider Grubb a "critical" missing person because of concerns about her safety.

Grubb is a white female, 5'5" tall, 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt of unknown color. She has no known medical problems.

Anyone with information about this case should call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
