One year ago today, Police Officer First Class Jason Schneider was fatally shot while serving a warrant at a home on Roberts Avenue in Precinct 1/Wilkens. He was 36. Officer Schneider is the ninth BCoPD member to give his life in service to his fellow citizens.

In the early morning hours of August 28, 2013, Officer Schneider responded as a member of the Tactical Unit to assist with service of a search and seizure warrant connected to the investigation of a shooting that had occurred nine days earlier. When the Tactical Unit, led by Officer Schneider, entered the home it encountered armed suspects. There was an exchange of gunfire, and Officer Schneider was hit. He died of his injuries later that morning at the University of Maryland's R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Today BCoPD members will wear mourning bands on their badges in memory of Officer Schneider.

"One year later, we continue to feel grief at Jason's loss," said BCoPD Chief Jim Johnson. "This was an experienced police officer, a leader and a friend to many in the police community. Only time will help us move past this tragedy. Meanwhile, I encourage us to seek comfort in our memories of Jason and pride in his brave and selfless sacrifice."

Today, Baltimore Country Police Officers are wearing a mourning band on their badges in memory of Corporal Sam Snyder.

In August 1983, 71-year-old Corporal Sam Snyder, a 30-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department, responded to the Bel-Loc Diner in the 1700 block of East Joppa Road 21234 to assist other officers with a call for service. While he was at the scene, he was shot by a subject. He died 10 days later as a result of his injuries.

Corporal Sam Synder’s name, along with other fallen heroes, is inscribed on a monument at Patriot Plaza in Towson.

In Memory of Lieutenant Michael Howe

Today, Baltimore County Police Officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges in memory of Lieutenant Michael Howe, the former commander of the Baltimore County Police Tactical Unit.

Lieutenant Michael Howe died on August 11, 2008 as a result of a massive stroke. On August 10, 2008, Lieutenant Howe was with his unit at the scene of a murder-suicide in Precinct 4/Pikesville. When he returned home after that incident, he collapsed, and was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he died the next afternoon.
