The Amy Sorrells Caprio Scholarship Endowment honors Caprio, a Towson University graduate and four-year veteran of the police department.
Caprio, 26, who worked out of the Parkville Precinct, was killed after being run over non May 21 while responding to a Perry Hall home invasion. Four teenagers have been indicted in relation to her death, with a trial scheduled for April 2019 according to court records.
“With the unfortunate passing of Officer Caprio, there were a good number of members of the greater Baltimore community looking to be able to have some sort of mechanism for honoring her, paying tribute to her,” said Todd Langenberg, associate vice president for development at Towson University.
Knowing that Caprio and her husband, Tim Caprio, were both Towson graduates, Langenberg said some alumni and family members of Caprio reached out and asked the university to start a fund.
