The next edition of Police Report, the Baltimore County Police Department’s cable TV program, runs through June 30.

This segment focuses on the Baltimore County Police Foundation’s 35th anniversary of its Annual Awards Program and Dinner that was held in April. A special 35th Anniversary Tribute was prepared to commemorate this special anniversary. In the video, there are a variety of people involved in the Foundation’s history – Chiefs of Police, Foundation Presidents, and, most importantly, some of the Department’s past award recipients.

The Baltimore County Police Foundation was established in 1980 to recognize Police Department employees for their outstanding performance and to strengthen the relationship between the Department and the business community.

The 35th Baltimore County Police Foundation Awards ceremony honored officers who performed exceptionally over the past year.

The ceremony was held April 22 at the Baltimore Hunt Valley Inn. Master of Ceremonies Stan Stovall hosted the event.

Winners of the Foundation awards -- the most prestigious award available to Baltimore County Police -- include a Pikesville officer who risked his life stopping a violent suspect, a Cockeysville officer who thwarted a school shooting and the Special Victims Unit for its work clearing old sexual assault cases. A complete list of winners and a description of their accomplishments is available on the Baltimore County Police Foundation web site.

The Foundation is a private, business-sponsored, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of police service in the County, and strengthening the relationship between police and the business community.

Baltimore County Police Lieutenant Ralph Donahoe has been named Officer of the Year by the Essex Elks Lodge #1866.

Lieutenant Donahoe, a 32-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department, received a certificate honoring his many years of service and dedication to the community. He was honored on March 28 at the Exalted Ruler’s Party and Awards ceremony.

The Essex Elks Lodge #1866 was instituted in 1952 and has grown from a membership of 60 to 600. The group is a fraternal organization dedicated to the needs of the community. That includes helping children with handicaps or diseases or sponsoring scholarships and other aid to the young people in our county.
