Founded

The Maryland State Police Alumni Association, Inc. (MSPAA) was formed in 1960. The purpose was to form a body of former and current members of the Maryland State Police in a bond of good fellowship, to promote a closer professional and social union among them and to assist and promote the Maryland State Police.

Membership

If you are a retired, active, former or civilian employee of the MD State Police, and are interested in learning more about our association, check out the information on the “Membership” page.
Allied police agency personnel active or retired are welcome and may apply as an Associate member.

Stay Informed

“The Alumni News” is a popular quarterly newsletter of the Alumni Association that is mailed to all its members around the State and country.
We also have an email distribution service to keep our members and associates aware of events and interests involving our organization.

Meetings

The Alumni Association normally meets several times a year at luncheons held around the State of Maryland. Some social events take place between meetings. Spouses are always welcome.

MSPAA President's Message

We gathered some dedicated Alumni and Department members and built a beautiful tribute to our fallen heroes. We aid in the beautification of the memorial with the Facilities Management Division to upkeep the bedding and surroundings. Our Tom Ingram Walk of Honor continues to be a living tribute to a great man that loved his state and his fellow troopers. Members can purchase an engraved brick that paves a pathway to our law enforcement memorial. Recently, we assisted dedicated members of the department in the formation of a Maryland State Police K9 Cemetery, located in Easton, Md. Special thanks to Lt. Robert Connolly for the vision of placing our K9 heroes in a proper resting site. 

Most recently, your financial support by personal donations earmarked for the MSP Museum and overwhelming support of our Annual Road Dawg Rumble, has rendered success with a renovated historical building on MSP headquarters grounds. This building is the location of our new MSP Museum. We continue to work toward improvements and additions to our museum. Your support in our museum is wanted and needed. 

We appreciate your opinions, time, talents, and monetary support to bring the museum to a successful opening. One of our first projects for the museum is the formation of our Honorary Wall. This tile project gives our membership a place of remembrance, tribute, legacy, and honor. Your name engraved on the wall will be the first impression as you enter our new Museum. Your legacy will be etched in stone forever. Thank you to all that have contributed to this project. All proceeds will go directly to improvements and additions to the museum.

Our organization works effectively with our lobbyist in ensuring our sworn and retired members are properly represented in the session. For 2021, our representative is Jack Howard. He will be working with our lobbyist to ensure our current police officer rights are protected and continue to support efforts to maintain affordable healthcare benefits for our retirees. We want to stay on top of issues that affect our people .

As we gather in fellowship, our retirees gather on a monthly basis at various restaurants across the state. These folks discuss old times and new. Many times they are joined by local barrack commanders and staff. We thank you for your dedication in attending these gatherings and keeping our folks updated on activities and listening to their concerns.

Our organization hosts several events across the state that includes a salute to our MSPAA Trooper of the Year and Civilian of the Year. We feast on a delicious Crab luncheon with all the fixings on our Eastern Shore. In the Fall, we gather at an Ocean City Retreat to honor our Fallen Heroes and those MSP members that have passed away during the year.

Most important about any organization is the membership that the group represents. We appreciate each of you. We want you to know that your opinion, concerns, and ideas are welcomed. Thank you for your comments and suggestions as we move forward with activities and projects. May God Bless You and Your Family and God Bless our Peacemakers.

 

Blessed Are the Peacemakers
