Original release (August 5, 2016  1:03 p.m.):

The Baltimore County Police Department, this week, hosted a visit from students from  Zheijiang Police College, Hangzhou, China and police officers and supervisors The People’s Police Academy, Hanoi, Vietnam.

The students and police officers met with Captain Jay Landsman Jr. who gave them a brief overview of the department and the precinct. The visitors were encouraged to ask questions about police procedures and the legal system.

Officer Kathy Kraemer then met with the two delegations and gave them a tour of the precinct. Students and police officers were shown police cars that are outfitted with computers and other necessary equipment needed by patrol officers. They watched a demonstration of the T-3,  a motorized vehicle used in Towson’s downtown area. Later, during the tour, an officer showed them a unloaded Taser with its camera. He explained that not every officer is qualified to carry and use the Taser.

The groups visited the rooms where prisoners are taken following arrest. Rooms such as fingerprinting, the booking photo area and the holding cells.

This is the third year that the Baltimore County Police Department has worked with the University of Maryland College Park on this program.

Original release (September 9, 2015  9:16 a.m.):

Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining information on the 2009 death of a Glenmont man.

Just before 3 p.m. on February 14, 2009, Baltimore County Police responded to an apartment in the 7000 Block of Lachlan Circle 21239 for a cardiac arrest. When officers arrived at the scene, they found 22-year-old Daniel Ho Coverston suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He was declared deceased at the scene.

A witness told police that he had come to the location to check on Coverston because Coverston recently had surgery. There was no answer at the door, but the door was unlocked so he went inside where he found Converston unresponsive.

Baltimore County Police Homicide Detectives have conducted a thorough investigation into this incident but have not been able to develop any information that positively identified a suspect. They are now turning to the public for help.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
