Death Notification: Police Officer First Class Amy Caprio

Police Officer Amy Caprio | Baltimore County Police Department, Maryland

Police Officer Amy Caprio was intentionally struck and killed by a vehicle driven by a juvenile burglary suspect in front of 7 Linwen Way in the Perry Hall area of Baltimore County.

She had responded to calls about a burglary in progress in the neighborhood at approximately 2:00 pm and was given a description of a black Jeep Wrangler. As she arrived in the area she located the vehicle and followed it to the dead-end of the cul-de-sac where she challenged the driver to exit the vehicle. The juvenile driver opened the door and then accelerated towards Officer Caprio, fatally striking her.

A volunteer firefighter who lived nearby immediately performed CPR until Officer Caprio was transported to Franklin Square Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The vehicle’s driver abandoned the vehicle nearby and was taken into custody a short time later and charged as an adult with first-degree murder. The three other juveniles involved in the burglary were also apprehended.

Baltimore County FOP Lodge #4 Endorses Vicki Almond for Baltimore County Executive

The Baltimore County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4 is proud to announce the unanimous endorsement of County Councilwoman Vicki Almond for Baltimore County Executive.

Vicki Almond separated herself from the field of candidates with her proven track record of accomplished personal commitment to keeping our communities safe by working with law enforcement officers. Without serving as a police officer, there is no better way to understand the profession than serving in a leadership role of a Police Community Relations Council, which she did for many years.

Vicki Almond was instrumental in the creation of the Baltimore County School Resources Officer Program which has grown to serve all Baltimore County Middle and High Schools, and is viewed as a model program to the nation.  This not only keeps our youths safe and provides for a quality learning environment, but also serves to foster relationships between the students and the police; a value that cannot be understated.

As a County Councilwoman, Vicki  has intimate knowledge of the inner working of county government and has not been shy of making difficult decisions. She know what she wants and will foster open, transparent leadership. Her administration will work with stakeholders to continue to make Baltimore County a safe place to live, raise a family, work and enjoy recreation.

Baltimore County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4 represents over 3,100 members who are either active, or retired Baltimore County Police Officers.
