Hogan Orders Flags at Half-Staff for Fallen Officer

Gov. Larry Hogan has ordered Maryland flags to be lowered to half-staff to honor Police Officer First Class Amy Caprio of the Baltimore County Police Department, who died in the line of duty May 21. The flags will be raised to full staff at sunset, May 25, the day of interment.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Caprio was killed Monday afternoon while responding to a call.

Governor Hogan released the following statement:

“We are heartbroken to lose a member of Maryland’s law enforcement family, Police Officer First Class Amy Caprio. Officer Caprio was a dedicated member of the Baltimore County Police Department who was soon to celebrate four years with the force. She bravely made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and security of our citizens, and we all owe her a debt of gratitude for her selfless service.

“We continue to keep Officer Caprio’s family, loved ones, her brothers and sisters in blue, and the entire Baltimore County community in our prayers. U.S. and Maryland flags will fly at half-staff through the day she is laid to rest in tribute to her service and sacrifice.

“The State of Maryland continues to stand beside Baltimore County as they work to bring those responsible for Officer Caprio’s death to justice.”
