Will Pinder, Patrol Deputy of the Year

In February 2015 Deputy First Class Will Pinder became the first African-American to be recognized as Deputy of the Year by the Allegany County, Maryland Sheriff's Office. There were actually two "Deputies of the Year." Will Pinder was recognized in the category of Patrol Deputy of the Year, whereas Deputy First Class Andrew Mackert was recognized for his work in the judicial division of the Allegany County Sheriff's Department. The following is an excerpt from an article referencing Pinder appearing in the February 17, 2015 edition of the Cumberland Times-News:

Pinder, Mackert named 'Deputies of the Year'

CUMBERLAND — Allegany County Sheriff Craig Robertson has announced that Deputy First Class Will Pinder and Deputy First Class Andrew Mackert have been presented the 2015 Deputy of the Year awards.

“This year the office recognizes Deputy First Class Will Pinder as the Patrol Deputy of the Year. Deputy Pinder first came to the Sheriff’s Office as a correctional officer in 2000 and later branched out into law enforcement with both the Frostburg State University Police and Cumberland City Police. Deputy Pinder returned to that field with Allegany County in 2008. This year, he has led the Sheriff’s Office in DUI arrests along with many other traffic related arrests. I am honored to work beside Will. He is a vital part of this agency and is always proactive in his duties going above and beyond,” said Robertson.
