TOWSON, MD — It has been five months since the death of Officer Amy Caprio. She was the first woman in the Baltimore County Police Department to die in the line of duty.

Caprio, 29, was killed while responding to a suspicious circumstance on May 21 on Linwen Way in Perry Hall.

Since then, she has been honored in a multitude of ways, from a memorial bike ride to a scholarship at Towson University established in her name.
