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

January: Officer Hays #5109 for leading her entire shift in her level of enforcement while sacrificing her time and regular post car assignment to ensure the proper training of a junior officer. She was also the primary officer on a shooting on Handworth Way, working with detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit securing the crime scene, obtaining witness accounts, conducting interviews, obtaining a search warrant, collecting evidence, and ultimately charging two suspects in the crime: Police Make Arrests in Sunday Night Shooting in Carney

February: Officer Scott #4785 who uncovered a shoplifting scheme when he responded to a call for two brothers arguing. The brothers were arguing over money that one owed to the other, money that Officer Scott determined was the dividends gained by them shoplifting at WalMart and selling the stolen goods. Officer Scott made two arrests that day, and recovered and returned some of the stolen items.

March: Officer Scott #4785, again! He's on a roll! From felony CDS and distribution arrests, to driving under the influence of CDS, warrants, suspended drivers, and locating the suspect vehicle involved in an armed robbery fleeing from the scene, Officer Scott was busy this month. He made quality arrests on a significant number of cases, clearing twice the number of cases of anyone else on his squad. His hard work and dedication are outstanding.

April: Officer Savoy #5495 led her shift this month in case clearances and arrests, all while conducting 132 business checks during the overnight hours to prevent burglaries and other potential crimes from being committed. She also arrested an extremely intoxicated driver that almost caused a collision on Belair Road, located a missing vehicle in an unauthorized use case, and arrested a juvenile for possession of marijuana and committing a number of traffic violations.



July: Officer Laisure #5509 transferred to Parkville from the Woodlawn Precinct this year. He is a proactive officer who promotes teamwork amongst members of his shift and leads by example, also leading his shift in case clearances, arrests, and traffic enforcement. On a traffic stop for an aggressive driver he discovered the driver was driving illegally on a learner's permit, and discovered the driver was in possession of narcotics. The interview following the arrest led to Officer Laisure obtaining information that helped clear a Baltimore City homicide. A great example of good policework!
