Frederick’s Most Wanted Marks its 250th Capture
_________________________________________________________________

Frederick, MD -- The Frederick Police Department in partnership with the Frederick News Post marked its 250th capture on December 29th with the arrest of Tamar Hill. Tamar Hill was arrested by the Metropolitan Police Department for driving without a license. Mr. Hill has an open warrant through the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office for violating his probation by cutting off his GPS device and was featured as one of Frederick’s Most Wanted on April 1, 2012.

Every other week, as part of the FMW program, approximately four persons wanted by the Frederick Police Department or allied agencies are featured on Sunday in the Frederick News Post detailing whom we are seeking and the charges against them. The Frederick’s Most Wanted program began in April of 2009 and has featured 343 wanted persons, 250 of them being captured to date.

Acting Chief Tom J. Ledwell, Chief of the Frederick Police Department, stated, “As the Frederick’s Most Wanted program reaches the milestone of helping to affect the arrest of the 250th wanted person, it is a reminder of how cooperation and communication between stakeholders in the Frederick community makes community policing successful. The Frederick Police Department would like to thank each of those stakeholders for their efforts and cooperation in this endeavor.”

The Frederick’s Most Wanted program idea was collaboration between several agencies that attend twice monthly Heightened Enforcement Accountability & Treatment Team (HEAT) meetings. These meetings are held at the Frederick Police Department with local law enforcement and community partners such as: Frederick Police Department, Office of Community Supervision (formally Parole & Probation), Department of Juvenile Services, Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office, Maryland State Police, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, Brunswick PD, Thurmont PD, The City of Frederick Code Enforcement, Community Action Agency and The Housing Authority.

The HEAT meetings are one component of the Safe Streets Initiative. The goal of the Safe Streets Initiative is to reduce crime by identifying and monitoring offenders in the area. The Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention funds the Safe Streets Initiative.

For more information about the Frederick’s Most Wanted Program please contact: Michele Bowman, Community Outreach Specialist, 301-600-2091 or mbowman@frederickmdpolice.org.
