On October 16, 2001, a Baltimore County police officer demonstrated an unselfish act of courage in rescuing a woman from an overturned burning automobile on Route 50 and was later recognized by the Maryland House of Delegates. This brave, kind, and compassionate individual is now a resident at Golden Crest Assisted Living. This member of the Golden Crest community along with many others including staff members want to express gratitude to those men and women who put on the badge everyday.
National Law Enforcement Day is celebrated in the month of January every year in order to honor and recognize our local heroes who put their lives on the line on a daily basis in order to keep our communities safe. To express great thankfulness, Golden Crest residents put together appreciation bags and then distributed them to the Hampstead Police Department and the Carroll County Sheriffs office in January and February. The bags were stuffed with water, mints, gum, protein bars, pens, notepads, as well as hand sanitizers, which were sealed with a blue ribbon. The members of these communities also created a brochure filled with positive memories of police experiences to share. These bags are a very small token of appreciation for the difficult job that these individual carry out regularly.
At a time in society when negativity has spread regarding law enforcement, Golden Crest wants to continue to support those that do wear their badges proudly and serve their communities to the best of their ability. Not only are they grateful for the law enforcement in their area, but the staff and residents of Golden Crest also want to put a thank you out to all police officers across the country. Golden Crest supports you! Stay safe out there!
