County police suspend ’stepping-out’ policy
A week after a Howard County police officer was fatally injured during traffic duty, Anne Arundel County has temporarily suspended the practice of officers stepping out of their vehicles to pull over speeders.
Cpl. Scott Wheeler suffered serious head injuries June 16 when he was struck while working on a speed-enforcement detail on Route 32 near Savage, Md.
“It”s a serious public-safety issue. I”ve given some thought to it for some time,” Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold told WJZ-TV (Channel 13). “The recent unfortunate tragedy in Howard County took it to the front burner.”
An evaluation of speed-enforcement policies will be conducted during the 30-day suspension.
