Baltimore Female Officer Killed in the Line of Duty

Crystal Sheffield, a three-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, was killed in the line of duty this Thursday, when her vehicle was struck by an unmarked police car which was responding to the same call as Sheffield. Sheffield, who was known in her Department for her ability to defuse tense domestic situations, is Baltimore’s first female officer to die in the line of duty. The National Center for Women & Policing extends our heartfelt sympathy to Officer Sheffield’s family, friends and colleagues.
