The Baltimore County Police Department received the CALEA Law Enforcement Accreditation November 2, 2014 for the ninth time. Accreditation means a police department meets a national body of standards developed by law enforcement professionals.

The BCoPD was first accredited in 1984; the Department voluntarily requests reassessment every three years.

International Gold Standard for Safety Agencies

The accreditation process is rigorous and is a year-long effort by the BCoPD’s Accreditation Team. The team is responsible for the hard work involved in documenting the Department’s compliance with CALEA’s standards in Policy and Procedures, Administration, Operations and Support Services.

CALEA was developed to enhance the status of law enforcement as a profession. CALEA seeks to improve public safety services by maintaining a body of standards developed by public safety practitioners and covering a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives; establishing and administering an accreditation process; and recognizing professional excellence.

Additional information about CALEA is available at www.calea.org.

A 32-year-old Baltimore man has been charged in the June 20 stabbing death of his pregnant girlfriend in her Rosedale home.

Kenneth Walter Worrell III of the 5800 block of Lillyan Avenue, 21206, has been charged with first-degree murder and is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The victim, Summer Shemida Smith, 33, of the unit block of Travis Court, 21237, was nine months pregnant when she was killed. The Baltimore County State's Attorney will review this case to see if additional homicide charges are warranted for the death of the unborn child.

The victim was found by her mother, bloody and unconscious, in the basement of the Travis Court home at about 7:30 p.m. on June 20; Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by BCoFD EMS personnel. An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner found that Smith suffered multiple injuries, including puncture wounds.

Detectives were able to link Worrell to the crime when DNA tests showed that blood stains on a bank receipt found in Worrell's car and dated the day of the murder belonged to Smith.
