The Maryland State Police Alumni Association is proud to announce its 2022 Civilian of the Year selection, Mr. Claude J. Boushey of the Aviation Command. This award has been added to the Trooper of the Year award process for 2022 and is foreseen to become a tradition for years. Awards are tools for motivating, recognizing, and rewarding employees. Awards and recognition programs serve as essential pieces of the overall employee compensation philosophy by helping to support a positive work environment and a culture of recognition that continually identifies and rewards individual and team contributions to the mission. Awards and recognition programs provide management with continuous communication of significant organizational and mission values.

The nominees were evaluated on merit-based scoring, including dedication, confidence, reliability, teamwork, independence, leadership, interpersonal communications, self-awareness, critical thinking, and integrity. We are honored to recognize the hard work that all our nominees did over the past year as they each helped support the mission of the Maryland State Police and the Troopers who contact the citizens of Maryland and those who visit the great state. Our nominee pool consisted of employees who provided the infrastructure needed by our front-line members. The behind-the-scenes approach to being a part of “Maryland’s Finest” was brought to the forefront of professionalism, and all applicants exemplified dedication to the community and its citizens.

The MSPAA Civilian of the Year is selected by the Alumni’s Civilian of the Year Committee, which comprises a cross-section of active and retired employees, both sworn and civilian, and encompassed all facets of employment by the Maryland State Police.
