Retailers honor county detective as crime fighter

March 05, 2000

A county police detective assigned to the Northern District has received one of two statewide awards from the Maryland Retailers Association for outstanding efforts in combating retail crime.

Detective Terresa L. Robey was recognized in the category of retail crime investigation and apprehension for developing "a new database and reporting system that allowed police to target chronic offenders," the association said.

She also was recognized for her work with the statewide Organized Retail Theft Task Force, in which she is developing a regional pilot program for Anne Arundel County and Southern Maryland.

"Terry's efforts provided a real focus on retail crime that was previously lacking," MRA President Tom Saquella said in announcing the award.

The other winner -- honored for efforts in retail crime prevention -- was State Police Tfc. Arthur Pfister of the Bel Air barracks.
