The September 2017 Commander's Award is issued to the members of the Towson Power Squad: Corporal D. Holt, Officer D. Bonhoff, Officer S. Bockstie, Officer R. Hoerr, Officer S. Johnson, and Officer R. Wagner.

The Towson Power Squad is tasked with handling the Central Towson area and all the ensuing issues. The members of this squad are self-motivated to not only respond to and handle the calls for service, but also develop a rapport with the business representatives and citizenry. The officers on this squad must strike a balance between enforcement of the applicable laws while presenting a community service by their mere presence and presenting a positive image of the police department.

During the month of September the squad successfully handled numerous incidents that ranged from drug arrests, first degree assault, theft, grand theft auto and various quality of life violations. They did so effectively, while maintaining a professional demeanor and positive image of police for the communities they serve. Your dedication and service to our community does not go unnoticed. Congratulations to all of you!

The Officer of the Month for September 2017 is Officer R. Rayner, for a second time this summer!

Officer Rayner had a busy September, clearing 11 misdemeanor cases, making 10 arrests, and clearing 1 felony case with an arrest. In addition, he also conducted an exemplary amount of traffic violation enforcement, resulting in the issuance of 198 pieces of traffic enforcement, and clearing 15 serious traffic cases, making 1 arrest. He also issued 8 criminal citations and 2 civil citations.

The most notable case he worked on this month was a home invasion robbery. A thorough and complicated investigation ultimately led to the arrest of two suspects, and the confiscation of a handgun and a rifle. Officer Rayner did a great job of making our community safer by getting these guns off the street and putting these bad guys where they belong, behind bars. Congratulations on a job well done, Officer Rayner!

Between noon and 1:30 p.m., a bicycle was stolen from the victim's garage.

While these two officers were not the chosen recipient for Officer of the Month Award for August 2017, their nominations are worthy of an honorable mention due to the contributions to the safety of our community and the result of their law enforcement work in the interruption of persistent crimes.

Officer S. Troyer #5698 was nominated for the Officer of the Month Award for her diligence, which ultimately led to the clearance of a number of overnight home burglaries. A series of these burglaries occurred during August, and detectives had run out of leads to follow, that is until Officer Troyer was dispatched to a burglary in progress. During her investigation she vigilantly canvassed the area until she located a subject behaving suspiciously enough for her to stop and investigate. She documented the field interview she had with the subject, and it was later determined that he was, in fact, the suspect responsible for the string of burglaries that had been occurring. He has since been charged accordingly.

Also nominated was Officer R. Daffron #5370 for his seizure of a large amount of illegal narcotics and multiple arrests in a narcotics violation that he investigated. His thorough investigation led to the confiscation of over 3 million dollars worth of illegal marijuana, $100,000 worth of cocaine, and over $20,000 in cash and assets, removing these dangerous drugs and criminals from our community. Very impressive!

These two officers exemplify the hard work and dedication it takes for a police officer to make a significant difference in crime reduction, increased safety, and better quality of life for the people in the community we serve, and their contributions are worth mentioning. Well done, officers!
