Police Captain Barbara Hopkins Retires

As another sign of major changes at our police department, Captain Barbara Hopkins has retired. A life-long resident of Annapolis and the daughter of former Alderman, journalist and Mayor Alfred "Al" Hopkins, she was the first female officer hired by the department in 1973 and was promoted to Captain in 1994. According to APD, she was instrumental in the Annapolis Police Department receiving National Accreditation in 2004 and worked to promote diversity in the staffing of the department. She was also recognized for her sound fiscal oversight of the agency's financial matters.

CP has known Captain Hopkins for many years and has often had the pleasure to sit with her at City Council meetings, where she is a regular, and perhaps the most frequent audience member. Thank you for your service Barbara. (What's next--politics???)
