Largest Class of Officers Promoted in Department's History

Forty-six officers were awarded new ranks Friday morning at a ceremony in Timonium.

 

Forty-six Baltimore County police officers were promoted to higher ranks Friday morning in the largest promotion class in the department’s 137-year history, Police Chief Jim Johnson said.

“They have performed extraordinarily well in this agency for decades. This is a very experienced group of people who are ready, willing and able to take on new responsibilities,” Johnson told Patch following the ceremony at the . “They’re shining examples of the very best in America’s law enforcement.”

Johnson attributed the substantial number of promotions partly to r

“Officers for the last five years have been waiting for retirement programs that have come of age and in addition the retirement incentive offered by the county did create some of these promotions,” he said.

jokingly found it fitting that the ceremony was held in the Fasig-Tipton showroom, where high-priced, prize-winning horses are auctioned off. 

“It seems fitting that we’re in the equestrian center where state shows off its finest mares and stallions,” Kamenetz said to subtle laughter. “We think that each of you has that same qualification and the chief says he’s going to check each of your teeth as you come here,” he added jokingly.”

Kamenetz harkened to the , a credit he paid forward to graduating officers.

“You can see the success of this department,” Kamenetz said.  “Our communities continue to be some of the most prosperous and sought after places to live in the entire nation.”

The county executive tasked the officers who crossed the dais with inspiring officers among their ranks.

“We really expect much from the men and women who wear this badge. But we expect even more from their leaders,” he said. “The qualities that our officers are known for—professionalism, courtesy, integrity—are qualities that are followed from the top down.”

Mike, read the Sun especially the front page of the printed version. You are correct if they get rid of Homan and remove the politics that goes on. http://towson.patch.com/blog_posts/most-experienced-police-colonel-manages-smallest-portion-of-department http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-baltimore-county-pensions-20111218,0,2598463.story

Frank G.Messina Retired Colonel Baltimore County Police Department Towson Patch Tyler Waldman.Patch.Com. Sir, I hate to correct you but the recent promotions of 48 were not the largest promotions in the history of the Baltimore County Police Department. On April 2, 1976 Chief Joseph R. Gallen promoted 58 members of the department to higher ranks. I was one of those being promoted. The Ceremoney took place on April 2, 1976 and the promotions were effective on April 3, 1976. To be sure that I am right, I got out the promotion photo and counted 58 officers. I also discovered on the rear of the photo a list of all the promotions and a notation that I also have a copy of the Personnel order with all the names being promoted. Promoted that day were: I- Colonel 8-Majors 12-Captains 10- Lieutenants 13- Sergeants 14-Corporals Total of 58 promotions I was also in the largest recruit class in the history of the department. A total of 63 recruits, sixty-two male and one female. They have come close to this number, but until now we still stand the largest. This is a great department and I was honored to serve and retire as a Colonel, Chief of Field Operation Bureau. I can truely say I worked for one of the best departments in this great country.

Colonel Messina it's good to hear from you. I don't think anyone would take issue with your facts. Wait till some of the group of the roundtable hear you commented on Patch. Chiefs Behan and Ensor will really enjoy hearing about your input. Imagine the total number of years of experience that were gathered around those hours of conversations. I do know that Tom cherished the time he spent with the group. On the way home that was all he talked about.

throughout all i can't help but recall 9/11 where whole families were either emt,fire or police and the trauma resulting from casualties suffered both during and after 8:45 that morning. it seems at the least no two of the same/extended family should be assigned to the same unit. john dillon for buzz beeler thoughts

Praise for this latest promotion list. Echo buzzy' thoughts seeing some last names, we are getting old, but it shows 'they' raised em right. To be successful, 1-take care of your people and 2-Do the right thing, at the right time and for the right reason. It was and is a great organization, wishing its' people the best. Dan Brennan, Retired BCoPD Sgt (1970-1997)
