RICHMOND — Dylin Lakes saw many sides of law enforcement while growing up in the Hagerstown and Cambridge City areas.

Through experience of police situations involving friends and relatives, he saw officers who handled things well – and he saw some who did not. Those life experiences, and an overall drive to do something to impact people’s lives, are what led him to plan a career in law enforcement.
