#SMCSO Cpl. Delozier briefly trades in uniform for flight suit; recongized as a "hometown hero" for her positive impact on youth

Last Friday, Cpl. Angela Delozier, a St. Mary’s County's Sheriff's Office deputy, briefly traded in her uniform for a flight suit. Just prior to the air show at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, she boarded a Navy SNJ2 prop plane for a high-flying ride-along with the Geico Skytypers. The thrill ride came as part of the reward for Cpl. Delozier being named a key influencer in our community in 2016. 

A school resource officer, Cpl. Delozier is known for her progressive style of interaction with young people. In May 2016, St. Mary’s County Public Schools solicited nominations for people who have had a beneficial impact on children, and Cpl. Delozier's supervisors selected her for the innovative ways she is connecting with the youth in St. Mary’s County.

Sheriff Tim Cameron says, “We are honored that Cpl. Delozier has been recognized for the exemplary work she does. Her nomination and selection show that the creative and energetic attitude she brings to her duties as school resource officer really has a positive impact on the students.”

Capt. Steven Hall added, “Cpl. Delozier takes the responsibilities of her job very seriously and above all, genuinely cares about her kids. She is truly deserving of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Cpl. Delozier has been with the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office for twelve years and has been a school resource officer for ten of those.  She is currently assigned as the resource officer for Leonardtown Middle School, Fair Lead Academy II., and the Forest Career and Technology Center. In addition, Cpl. Delozier spearheads the annual CAMP D.A.R.E. program; a free week-long summer camp focused on educating children about the dangers of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol. At CAMP D.A.R.E., Cpl. Delozier plans and coordinates all of the individual and team-building exercises, which are designed to empower students to make healthy life decisions.

Sheriff Tim Cameron and the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office offer their congratulations to Cpl. Angela Delozier for being selected as a “hometown hero” and thank the St. Mary’s County Public Schools, Patuxent River Naval Air Station Liaison's Office, Geico Skytypers, and the Patuxent River Naval Air Station Public Affairs Office for their efforts and time.
