Four members of the Princess Anne Police Department were recognized at the 2015 Maryland Traffic Safety Specialist Awards Luncheon. Officer Kara Meeks, Officer David Adams, Corporal Robert Smith and Chief Timothy Bozman were recognized as 2015 Traffic Safety Specialist award recipients at a ceremony in Gaithersburg, Maryland, on Sept. 23. The Traffic Safety Specialist designation is awarded by the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions, and the program is open to all police officers, deputy sheriffs and state troopers from all Maryland law enforcement agencies, and to certain federal law enforcement agencies. TSS designations are awarded at three levels: TSS-I, TSS-II, and TSS-III, with each successive level reflecting increasing degrees of experience and specialized training in traffic safety. Levels II and III also require submission of a formal paper which must be reviewed and approved by the TSS Executive Committee.

Feb. 21 on Beechwood Street where three people had injected heroin. While paramedics treated a patient in full cardiac arrest, Smith and Meeks administered Narcan to a second person who was unresponsive and barely breathing, Bozman said. The first patient died, but the second survived, he said. The cases in Princess Anne are among eight overdose reversals through the use of Narcan in one month reported by the Somerset County Health Department. The medication can quickly restore the breathing of a person who has overdosed on heroin or prescription opioid pain medication. Anyone from a police officer to a family member or friend can administer Narcan to save a life from overdose.
