Hagerstown Police Department

Officers Michael Kovac and Scott Leeney were selected as the Hagerstown Police Department’s officers of the month for November 2012.

On Nov. 16, Kovac and Leeney were dispatched to a local gas station for a report of subjects trying to pass counterfeit currency. Kovac arrived at the gas station first and advised over the police radio that the suspects left in a vehicle. Leeney observed the suspect vehicle while he was on his way to the gas station and initiated a traffic stop.

The two occupants of the vehicle were identified as the ones at the gas station who were believed to be attempting to pass counterfeit currency. While the officers were dealing with the occupants of the vehicle, they observed a large quantity of currency in the vehicle. They realized that the subjects they encountered were responsible for the armed robbery of a bank that occurred the previous day. The suspects were subsequently arrested and charged in the bank robbery.

Kovac has been employed by the City of Hagerstown for 10 years and Leeney has been employed by the city for six years. Both are assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division’s Charlie Platoon.
