Lanessa Hill USAG Public Affairs
Selfless service was just one of the Army Values that Fort Detrick U.S. Army Garrison Commander Col. Scott Halter, spoke about to the most recent graduates of the City of Frederick Police Department Academy, June 8, at the Weinberg Theatre in Frederick, Maryland.
As a keynote speaker, Halter praised the 13 graduates for their selfless service and provided a few words about the importance of their work to come.
“In the Army, there are seven values we hold dear, and selfless service is one of them. By volunteering to serve as a member of the police department, you are also embracing the value of selfless service -- you are putting the welfare of your neighbors, your community and of your fellow officers before your own,”said Halter.
Halter went on to say that serving with integrity and honor is critical to building those community relationships and beingmore effective in their jobs.
“By being a person of honor – by carrying out your duties with respect, integrity and personal courage – you will show the community you are a person who can be trusted, one who can be approached in the case of an emergency, or even one just to talk with. It’s up to you to build those relationships,” said Halter.
