New trooper to take over patrol of towns

June 30, 1994|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Sun Staff Writer

Beginning tomorrow, the residents of New Windsor and Union Bridge will see a new face patrolling their streets, as Tfc. John M. Dunn assumes the duties of resident trooper for the two northwest Carroll towns.

Trooper Dunn, a veteran of 14 years with the state police, lives with his wife, Dottie, and daughter, Valerie, in the Westminster area. He graduated from Mount St. Joseph High School in Baltimore in 1977.

After joining the state police as a cadet, his first assignment was to the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division in Western Maryland. In 1980 he was appointed to the state police academy and assigned to the Westminster barracks Resident Trooper Program. He has patrolled the western portion of the county for most of that time, according to a spokesman.

Trooper Dunn will replace Tfc. Phil Henry, who had been the resident trooper in Union Bridge for 12 years and filled the same post in New Windsor since November 1989, when the two towns agreed to share a trooper.

Trooper Henry has been reassigned to general patrol duties within the Carroll County Resident Trooper Program.

The police spokesman said Trooper Dunn has been involved in a full range of investigations during his tenure, and his experience and knowledge of the area should serve him well as the resident trooper for the two towns.
