Officer John Gregorio

Officer John Gregorio has served in the Southern District with distinction winning multiple commendations, including the Officer of the Year Award for his six years of service. Wanting to be a police officer since he was a young boy, Officer Gregorio left his life in the suburbs and confronts the entrenched hardships in Baltimore. He is keenly aware that his uniform carries a heavy weight; he bears the burden of the actions of all of his brothers and sisters in blue and he is considered the face of government to most people he sees throughout the day. With so many of his calls falling beyond the scope of policing, and reliant on other agencies to provide the support so often needed, Officer Gregorio must live with the consequences of a system that routinely fails the people it is intended to serve.
