On May 21, 2018, Officer Amy Sorrells Caprio, 29, responded to a call for a suspicious vehicle with multiple suspicious subjects walking around homes on Linwen Way in Precinct 8 Parkville. When she arrived and located the vehicle, she got out of her police car and ordered the driver to exit the vehicle. Instead, the driver accelerated and fatally struck Officer Caprio.

Officer Caprio was nearly a four-year veteran of the Department and was married. Officer Caprio is the first female line-of-duty death in the Department's history.

As of this date, ten officers have lost their lives in the line-of-duty in Baltimore County.
