May 11, 2019, I ran the National Police Week 5k in honor of you.

My agency Baltimore County Police Department, MD lost Police Officer I Amy Sorrells Caprio
EOW: Monday, May 21, 2018, the same year as Patrolman II LeAnn Simpson. BCoPD is a larger agency, very close to Washington D. C., and we had several members running in Amy's honor. I did not know if anyone from the Philadelphia Police Department, Mississippi would be able to attend the National Police Week to represent you.

As a fellow Army Veteran and Law Enforcement, it was my honor to run for you and your agency.

Rest easy sister.
