Frederick Resident Wins Volunteer of the Year Award

2019 vol of year

Rick McCaskill was awarded the 2018 Citizen Volunteer of the Year Award on June 27. McCaskill has volunteered for the Frederick Police Department for five years, making a measurable impact in the department.

The Volunteer Citizen of the Year Award recipient is chosen based on their involvement with their community and the selfless volunteer work they provide. The Chief of Police is in charge of nominating the citizen they believe deserves the award.

In McCaskill’s nomination, Chief of Police Todd Norris said “Rick clearly exemplifies the virtue of good citizenship and has gone over and beyond simply volunteering his time. His dedication to our agency has ultimately contributed to the success of our organization.”

In 2018, McCaskill volunteered over 250 hours, helping Chief Norris with various tasks including updating policies and procedures, collecting data for the annual report and processing old case files. McCaskill also helps the rest of the department with tasks such as assisting with evidence room audits, issuing pet licenses and fingerprinting just to name a few.

McCaskill volunteered for many of the programs the police department has, including National Night Out, Neighborhood Watch and Santa Cops. All of these programs play a large role in shaping the Frederick community.
