The Precinct 6 Officer of the Month for March 2017 is Officer S. Singh #5842.

Officer Singh is a newer officer but is demonstrating his commitment to his profession and the community with his diligent work ethic. During the month of March, Officer Singh handled a daily average of 8 calls for service to the public, while conducting routine patrol and proactively checking on businesses. During one such random business check, Officer Singh came upon a felony narcotics violation for which he made arrests of two suspects and took illegal drugs off the streets.

Another notable case that Officer Singh resolved through his diligence and dedication included nine separate occasions of money being fraudulently removed from a citizen’s bank account. This was an involved investigation that required numerous interviews, reviews of numerous documents, responding to different crime scenes, and searching for evidence. His tenacity paid off. He identified the suspect, who has been charged accordingly with the thefts.

In addition to his good investigatory work, Officer Singh also utilizes the deescalation skills he was taught to calm victims and ascertain valuable information. On March 10th, while investigating a commercial armed robbery, Officer Singh was able to quickly calm the victim, obtain and disseminate a description of the suspect. During that time a call for a second nearby commercial armed robbery was broadcast. Based on the description Officer Singh had obtained, police were able to determine the same suspect was responsible for both robberies. Officers located a subject in the area matching the description and Officer Singh was able to identify him as the responsible criminal, placing him under arrest.

Officer Singh was recently presented the Officer of the Month award by Captain Landsman and Mr. Wesley Wood, director of the Towson Police Community Relations Council. Congratulations, Officer Singh, on a job well done!
