  Today, August 23, 2019 all Officers are wearing their mourning bands in honor of Corporal Snyder who was shot and killed while backing up officers at a disturbance call at a local restaurant at the intersection of Loch Raven Boulevard and East Joppa Road.

When officers arrived, they found several patrons attempting to separate a man and a woman engaged in a physical altercation. The officers were able to gain control of the situation and placed the male suspect in his own car while they questioned witnesses. The man suddenly pulled out a gun from under his seat and began shooting.

Corporal Snyder had just arrived on the scene and was walking toward the other officers when the shooting began. He was struck once in the back by one of the five shots fired. Other officers on the scene returned fire, wounding the man in the abdomen before taking him into custody.

Corporal Snyder was flown to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries 13 days later. At 71-years-old, he was the oldest active serving officer with the department when he was shot. He had been with the agency for 30 years and was survived by his wife and son.

  The Auxiliary Team is proud to announce and collectively extend our congratulations to Auxiliary Officer First Class Mark Galliard, who was named as the 2016 Officer of the Year by the Law Officers Association of Baltimore County. Ofc. Galliard was one of the six Auxiliary finalists for this honor. In addition to receiving an award from the LOABC, Mark also received citations from the Maryland House of Delegates, the Maryland Senate, and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.

One example of Ofc. Galliard's exceptional work performance is his willingness to 'work the desk' at the Wilkens Precinct, and interact with the citizens of Baltimore County. This directly increases both public and officer safety by allowing the Wilkens Precinct Commander to deploy an additional officer to respond to Calls for Service (911).

Ofc. Galliard volunteers to take on additional responsibilities and is considered an asset to the Auxiliary Unit, his Auxiliary Detachment, and to the Wilkens Precinct.

For a job well done, congratulations on receiving the 2016 Officer of the Year Award!
