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

January: Officer Rathmell #4328 who worked a post car only seven days in January but managed to make 49 traffic stops, take 14 reports, and clear 3 misdemeanor traffic violation cases. Officer Rathmell is a highly motivated and experienced officer who is always willing to go the extra mile for investigations or to simply help out a citizen in need. During a call for a suicidal subject, Officer Rathmell was able to establish a rapport with the subject and safely resolve the situation when no one else was able to do so.

February: Officer Cotton #3744 for his selfless policing, genuinely putting his concern for the public before his own safety. Officer Cotton responded to a call for a sick person in a vehicle around 4 p.m. He found the driver slumped over the steering wheel in a vehicle stopped in the exit lane of a shopping center. Officer Cotton saw that the vehicle was still in drive but the driver had his foot on the brake, so he opened the car door to check on the driver, who suddenly put his foot on the gas pedal. Officer Cotton realized the vehicle was about to drive straight into York Road during heavy traffic, which would endanger numerous peoples' lives, so he ran with the vehicle until he was able to reach inside and shift the gear lever into park. Officer Cotton ultimately arrested the driver for DUI, whose blood alcohol concentration proved to be four times the legal limit of 0.08 BrAC.

March: Officer Pitts #4947 for the outstanding year he had as a first-year school resource officer, teaching DARE to the 6th grade students, having "lunch bunch" sessions with students in his office, spending time after school at the PAL center, and just generally fostering great relationships with both the students and faculty alike at Cockeysville Middle School.
