The Facebook post included several photos of a smiling Baltimore County police officer, some of him in a suit, another sporting outdoor gear. None showed him in uniform or flashing a badge..
The officer works undercover, and the Facebook poster warned that he investigates gun-related cases. The Facebook user's friend had been arrested in June by the officer in an illegal arms sting. The officer is "known to pose as a gun dealer in order to entrap and arrest people," the post read.
"Please share this."

In the calendar year 2014, the men and women of the Boston Police Department have taken 474 illegal crime guns off the streets of Boston. A crime gun is defined as an illegal firearm used in the commission of a crime or confiscated in the course of an arrest. In addition to the above, 384 guns have been voluntarily turned in by community members taking advantage of the Boston Gun Buyback Program. All told, there are 858 fewer guns in circulation as a result of the above efforts. For perspective purposes, the BPD seized a total of 667 guns for the year in 2013.
One of the longer running traditions within the Boston Police Department is the bestowing of the badge bearing the #1 to the officer – or in this case detective – who has the most time on the job.
