Montgomery County Police Officer Honored for Service to Suburban Hospital

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, June 24, 2014


Officer Dana Stroman, a Community Outreach Officer in the 2nd District, became the first Montgomery County police officer to receive Johns Hopkins Corporate Security’s Police Officer of the Year Award.  The award is presented to a police officer who, when answering calls for service to Johns Hopkins-owned institutions, has demonstrated a commitment to excellence and provided consistent support to Corporate Security and Johns Hopkins personnel.  The award was previously presented only to Howard County law enforcement officers.  In 2014, the award was expanded to include law enforcement officers in Montgomery County and Washington, D.C.

Officer Stroman was selected as the Montgomery County recipient based on her work with Johns Hopkins Suburban Hospital.  Her contributions included working with hospital management to change a hospital phone extension that resulted in inadvertent calls and hang-ups to the 9-1-1 emergency line, working with hospital security staff to develop a plan to increase safety and security in the hospital’s Emergency Room, and arranging for Suburban Hospital staff to take blood pressure readings and provide wellness information at monthly Senior (Citizen) Forums organized by Officer Stroman and held at the Westfield Montgomery shopping center.

In July, Officer Stroman will have been a Montgomery County Police Officer for 22 years and has served as a Community Outreach Officer for 15 years.

The Police Officer of the Year award was presented to Officer Stroman on June 18, 2014 during a luncheon at the Copper Canyon Grill in Silver Spring.
