Letters from the Chief to the Community

Lt. Thomas Leone Promoted

Dear Colleagues:
I'm pleased to announce that Lt. Thomas Leone has been promoted to the position of acting deputy chief, effective immediately. Lt. Leone has been instrumental in our efforts to create deeper and more productive relationships with the wider community. He also has used his experience as a drug task force leader in Western Maryland to engage and educate our officers on critical issues, such as the employment of naloxone to prevent opioid overdose, and the use of pre-booking referrals to divert arrestees from chronic criminal behavior. 
Additionally, Capt. Erik Pecha and Capt. Dameon Carter, MS, will now hold the rank of assistant chief.
I hope you'll join me in offering your support to our officers in their new roles.
Alice K. Cary, MS
Chief of Police
