Maryland State Police Field Operations Bureau Chief Lt. Col. William Arrington, interim school Superintendent Charles I. Ecker and other local officials honored Shannon for her dedication and service to the law enforcement community.

She donated one vest each to Westminster City Police and Carroll County Sheriff's Office.
