FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION
Lieutenant Fall, who would have celebrated his 35th year with the force next month, had been assigned to the division since 1976 and had been in charge of support services since 1992.
A founder of the repeat offenders unit in the 1970s, his responsibilities also included arrest and extradition of fugitives and working with the career criminal and firearms violence units.
"He was the consummate detective who brought a wealth of knowledge to his work," said Capt. William G. Kalista, commander of the Criminal Investigative Division. "He was an expert in surveillance and had a real knack for remembering people and suspects."
Lieutenant Fall joined the county police force in 1962 and began his career as a patrolman in the Garrison Precinct.
He was born in Camden, N.J., and moved to Essex as a youngster. He was a 1958 graduate of Kenwood High School, and served in the Army as a paratrooper from 1958 until 1961.
He was married to Sharon Ginski in 1988.

Jean Fulton Hiss, a former Calvert School educator and the oldest living Goucher College alumnus, died Thursday in her sleep at Roland Park Place. She was 103.
Mrs. Hiss, who taught for 42 years, began her career at the North Baltimore private school in 1917.
At the time of her retirement in 1959, she stunned colleagues with the news that she wasn't renewing her contract and was getting married. At age 65, she married John Bosley Hiss, and for years the couple operated the Amy B. Hiss Antique and Gift Shop in Towson. He died in 1995.
The former Jean Fulton, who was born and raised on Calvert Street, was a 1910 graduate of Girls' Latin School and earned her bachelor's degree from Goucher College in 1914.
"Until nearly the end of her life, she was active and remained a wonderful listener whose memories remained fresh. She would talk about the Great Fire of 1904, World Wars I and II and the Influenza Epidemic of 1918," said Laura Karll of Baltimore, a stepdaughter.
"In 1992, she organized a reunion of about 15 of her former students, who now reside at Roland Park Place," Mrs. Karll said.
Mrs. Hiss, who lived for many years in the Carlyle Apartments on West University Parkway, had moved to Roland Park Place in 1984.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Roland Park Place, 830 W. 40th St., Baltimore.
In addition to her stepdaughter, she is survived by eight step-grandchildren; 16 step-great-grandchildren; and a step-great-great-grandchild.
