Crofton * Odenton * Fort Meade * Gambrills

WEST COUNTY --

February 04, 1993

Bill would recognize Crofton police

The Crofton Police Department is looking for more recognition, and Del. Marsha G. Perry wants to help.

The Crofton Democrat plans to introduce a measure in the General Assembly to place the four-member force that patrols the tax district on a list of police departments recognized by the Maryland Police Training Commission.

The public would see no change in the department as a result of the bill, which would make the small force autonomous.

The officers now are granted their arrest powers by the county.

If the bill were passed, Chief Deborah Bogush would be able to swear in her own officers instead of relying on the county to perform the task, for example.

Parkway, Route 32 get new northbound ramp

A new ramp from the northbound lanes of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway to Route 32 is to open at 10 a.m. tomorrow,, according to the State Highway Administration.

The ramp is the first part of a $5.6-million project to upgrade the interchange near Fort Meade and the National Security Agency.

The ramp will "enhance traffic flow and provide easier access to the nearby NSA," the SHA said in a statement.

When completed this fall, a clover-leaf interchange should help ease traffic congestion during rush hour.

Kibler Construction of Finksburg is the contractor for the project.
