Capt. John Spiroff, commander of the Wilkens Police Station that patrolled Precinct One that includes Arbutus, Catonsville and Lansdowne, will be leaving the station next week.
Spiroff has been promoted to detective captain for the Baltimore County Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.
He will be succeeded at Wilkens by Capt. Douglas Irwin, a 20-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department.
Irwn was most recently commander of the department’s Internal Affairs Division, according to Cpl. Cathleen Batton, a county police spokeswoman.
The shift in assignments is expected to take place about Oct. 22.
Spiroff, a Severna Park native, had served as the Wilkens Station commander since 2004.
