Hagerstown Police Department

Officer Carroll Braun was selected as officer of the month for November by the Hagerstown Police Department.

He was nominated for his tenacious follow-up investigation into a burglary at the old Statton Furniture Co. at 504 E. First St. in Hagerstown.

In October, Braun and Sgt. Kevin Simmers responded to 277 S. Potomac St. for a report that suspects were at the address and had just stolen copper. Braun went to the location, noticed some copper at the residence, and with the help of the Hagerstown Police Department Criminal Investigation Division, wrote and executed a search warrant. As a result, Braun obtained arrest warrants for four subjects that where involved in a major burglary at the old Statton Furniture Co. With the help of the community, he tracked down one of the suspects involved in the burglary, culminating in an arrest when the subject was found hiding in an attic.

Braun has been with the police department for 24 years and is assigned to the Downtown Squad.

Officer Chris Decker of the Hagerstown Police Department received honorable mention for November’s officer of the month.

Decker is being recognized for his tenacity in patrolling his sector and his awareness of community issues.

On Nov. 26 and 27, Decker conducted a check of the former Statton Furniture Co. at 504 E. First St. in Hagerstown, which was the site of a burglary several weeks earlier. In the early hours of Nov. 28, Decker observed a vehicle parked behind the business. He made contact with a male at the vehicle, who, it was later determined, was in the process of stealing copper wiring from the business. Entry had been made through a door that Decker knew to be locked from his previous checks at the building.

Decker has been with the department for four years and is assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division.
