Carroll County Md Law Enforcement Appreciation Ceremony


Law Enforcement Appreciation Ceremony

Westminster Md., Friday, Jan. 9, 2015 - Several hundred hardy folks braved 25 degree temperatures to show their appreciation for Carroll County area law enforcement agencies this evening at 7 p.m. between the County Office Building and the Sheriff’s Office located at 225 North Center Street, Westminster

In a prepared remarks, the Carroll County board of commissioners said they wanted to come together “to show our gratitude and appreciation for all that our police personnel do for the citizens of Carroll County each and every day…

“Please join us in showing our support for each of the law enforcement agencies in Carroll County, including the municipal police forces, the Sheriff’s personnel as well as the State Police. Take a tour of the Sheriff’s Office Emergency Command Vehicle and other law enforcement vehicles that will be on hand.

“Every day police officers put their lives in harm’s way to protect law abiding citizens; Friday evening is a time for each of us to thank these brave men and women for their service and for keeping our community safe.”

Also speaking were Carroll County Delegate Justin Ready, Carroll County Sheriff Jim DeWees, Carroll County State’s Attorney Brian DeLeonardo and Delegate-elect and former Hampstead mayor and county commissioner Haven Shoemaker –of whom many ‘blamed’ in a good-natured way, for coming up with the idea for the event – that took place in frigid temperatures and a brisk bone-chilling wind.

Among the many folks also attending were the head of the Westminster Police Department dispatchers Brenda Roper, members of FOP Lodge # 20, including Lodge vice-president Steven E. Rogers, former Westminster Vol. Fire Department president Bob Cumberland, and several allied agencies and organizations, such as Catherine’s Cause; that are a constant source of support and encouragement for law enforcement officer. 

The event concluded with the commissioners being award a ‘Thin Blue Line’ flag. A spokesperson explained that on the ‘Thin Blue Line’ flag, the top line represents the public, the bottom line represents the criminals and the blue line in the center represent the thin blue line that separates the public from the criminals.

The program concluded with a prayer by the Carroll County Detention Center chaplain Bob Kimmel.
