  2. 2019 Officer of the Month Awards

    The following officers have been awarded Officer of the Month by their Commanding Officer:

    January: Dundalk Community Action Team (CAT) for their collective proactive enforcement, serving 22 arrest warrants & making 19 self-initiated criminal arrests, as well as 2 serious traffic offense arrests. 

    February: Officer Heimiller #5584 for leading his squad in case clearances and traffic violation enforcement, including one drunk driver, five suspended drivers, two unlicensed operators, two uninsured vehicles, and one juvenile who attempted to flee and elude Officer Heimiller, without success. That juvenile was arrested and prosecuted for the traffic violations as well as CDS violations to include distribution. Officer Heimiller takes his role ni keeping the motoring community safe seriously, and understands the importance of traffic enforcement in overall crime suppression.

    March: Officer Thorn #4868 for his initiative, investigative work with the Homicide Unit that led to clearing a murder-suicide in Edgemere, and his overall high level of enforcement of both traffic violations and crime. He investigated a number of significant cases this month resulting in clearances and arrests. Officer Thorn uses sound decision making and maintains a tactical mindset in every situation he faces. He maintains professionalism in all encounters, and his investigations are thorough and competently conducted. He works well with other agencies to further his investigations, as well as disseminating information to other agencies when it could assist in cross-jurisdictional investigations.

    April: Dundalk Traffic Team which works daily to keep the motoring public safe, had an outstanding month of traffic law violation enforcement, in addition to clearing 8 hit-and-run crash investigations. This team genuinely cares about the safety of the citizens of Baltimore County, targeting negligent and careless drivers in an effort to prevent motor vehicle crashes. They also focus traffic enforcement efforts in high crime areas in an effort to deter crime and detect criminal activity as it is occurring, which led them to making one arrest on a felony warrant and 5 additional arrests. They are quick to respond to community traffic complaints and make sure they bring the complaint to a satisfactory result.

About the Precinct Commander

Captain Glen Wiedeck is a 29-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department. He started his law enforcement career in 1989 as a patrol officer in Dundalk. He worked uniform patrol for six years before becoming a detective in the Criminal Investigations Bureau.

In 1992, Captain Wiedeck was selected to join the Hostage Negotiations Team. He worked tirelessly to peacefully resolve critical incidents and help people in crisis for 15 years, ultimately becoming the assistant team commander until his departure in 2007.

He transferred to the Narcotics Unit as a detective in 1995. He remained in the Narcotics Unit until he was promoted to the rank of corporal in July 2002 and assigned to the White Marsh Precinct. He worked as a patrol supervisor until June 2003 when he was transferred to supervise the White Marsh Precinct Community Drug/Violence Interdiction Team. Captain Wiedeck was promoted to the rank of sergeant in January 2005 and assigned as a patrol supervisor in the Essex Precinct. He was assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit in January 2006 as a detective sergeant and then later promoted to the rank of detective lieutenant and assumed command of the Regional Auto Theft Task Force. Captain Wiedeck was later transferred back to the Crimes Against Children Unit as the unit commander. While assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit as both a sergeant and lieutenant, he had the opportunity to work closely with the Baltimore County Departments of Social Services and Health toward the common goal of protecting children.

Captain Wiedeck is excited about the opportunity to work in the same area where he started as a young patrol officer 29 years ago to help reduce crime and improve the quality of life for citizens. Captain Wiedeck strongly supports the departmental values of Integrity, Fairness and Service and will work hard to reinforce those values in his assignment as the commander of the Dundalk Precinct, which began February 1.
