'-' "':''t'"N'L"91oanuary, '197 '" New officers join force at State Police Troop 7 baJ00racks By Kerry Kester Delaware State Police Troop 7 has recently undergone rrtajor staffing changes. Five of the vet- eran officers have been re-as- signed to other units, and eight of the troopers who graduated from Delaware State Police Training Academy in September have com- pleted their field training and are now assigned to Troop 7. The new troopers, who are all assigned to patrol duty, include Suzanne Baker, Michael Cal- loway, Fred Chambers, Kimberly Cook, Damian Fuscellaro, Ryan Mitchell, Richard "Rusty" Parker, Jr. and Kimberly Reinoehl. Baker is a 1986 Delmar High School graduate and has an asso- ciate degree in criminal justice from Delaware Technical & Com- munity College. She is pursuing a bachelor's de- gree in criminal justice from Wilmington College. "I chose po- lice work as a profession because I want to assist people and help the public," said Baker. Calloway, a Sussex Central High School graduate, earned his associate degree in criminal jus- tice from Delaware Technical & Community College in 1994. "Police work gives me a chance to help the community," he said. Calloway lives in Georgetown with his wife and son and is a member of a Methodist church. Chambers graduated from Smyrna High School in 1992 and is nearing completion of his bach- elor's degree in behavioral sci- ence from Wilmington College. He and his wife have one child. "I chose police work because the work changes every day, and you basically work for yourself when you are the road," said Chambers. "You make all of your own de- cisions and decide the outcome of difficult situations. It also gives great satisfaction to help people and possibly make a difference in someone's life." Cook grad- uated from Moshannon Valley Ju- nior-Senior High School in 1989 and went on to earn her bachelor of COOK arts degree in administration of justice from Penn State University in 1995. She did her Delaware State Police field training at Troops 3 and 7. Cook enjoys jogging, outdoor ac- tivities and horses. "I chose police work because it's interesting and I enjoy peo- ple," said Cook. "In addition, I like the feeling of doing some- thing good and getting satisfaction from my job. This job is very sat- isfying and enjoyable." Fuscellaro graduated in 1993 from Fairleigh Dickinson College in Teaneck, N.J. with a degree in finance. He is a member of the YMCA and enjoys running, swimming and fishing. "I have al- ways been interested in the law," said Fuscellaro. "I also enjoy helping people." , Mitchell graduated from Sussex Central High School in 1993 and from Delaware Technical & Com- munity College in 1995, where he earned an associate degree in criminal justice. "I chose police work for my profession because of the excitement - not doing the same thing every day," said Mitchell. "Each day is different." Mitchell resides in Georgetown. He enjoys exercising, hunting and fishing. Parker graduated from Parkside High School in Salisbury in 1983. He earned a degree in political science from Salisbury State Uni- versity "in 1987, then served in the U.S. Army at Fort McClel- lan in Alaba- ma as a police officer. He continued his criminal jus- tice studies PARKER with the East- ern Shore Criminal Justice Acade- my in Salisbury, completing the training in 1992. After graduating from the Delaware State Police Academy, he did field training at both Troop 4 and Troop 7. "I don't know how many times, while being a police officer in Sal- isbUry and now a Delaware State proached me and told me they don't know how I do police work, because they could never do it," said Parker. "I've thought about their state- ments and realized that if every- one thought like that, then the criminals have won and society has lost, without people willing to stand in harm's way and protect the public's peace. "Police work allows me the op- portunity to interact with various ethnic and socioeconomic groups and to attempt to resolve poten- tially hazardous situations before they escalate. The results of my interaction may not be agreeable to one or both sides of those in- volved in the situation, but as long as lives and property have been protected, then I feel I accom- plished my job," said Parker. Parker will soon be moving from Salisbury to the Lewes area. He enjoys movies because "every- one needs a little escape from re- ality." He is a practicing Methodist. Reinoehl graduated from Sun Valley High School in 1990 and earned her associate degree in criminal justice from Delaware County Community College in 1995. "I chose this line of work because I wanted to give some- thing back tO the community and help people who might not be able to help themselves," said Rei- noehl.
