Police officer lauded twice this week

April 25, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Howard County police Pfc. Sandra Argueta-Copley collected two more honors this week for her work with Hispanic victims of domestic violence.

The 29-year-old patrol officer received the 2002 Governor's Victim Assistance Award yesterday at a luncheon and ceremony at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbia. She was among two dozen who received victims assistance awards.

Fluent in Spanish, Copley volunteers with the Domestic Violence Center as an on-call officer and interpreter. She has been an officer about six years and lives in Anne Arundel County with her husband, a Prince George's County police officer, and her 8-year-old son.

Copley was honored at another luncheon this week as one of about 100 regional officers nominated by The Sun for 2001 Police Officer of the Year.

About a month ago, Copley was recognized as one of two Howard County community service officers of the year.
