COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – A retired Youngstown police officer received an achievement award Wednesday at the Ohio Attorney General’s Law Enforcement Conference.

Attorney General Mike DeWine presented Det. Sgt. Delphine Baldwin-Casey with a Distinguished Law Enforcement Lifetime Achievement Award.

When Baldwin-Casey joined the Youngstown Police Department in 1978, she was one of the first female officers. She also became the first female front-line supervisor for YPD.

Baldwin-Casey created the Youngstown Crisis Intervention Unit in 1996, which helps victims of domestic violence, rape and violent crimes.

She was nominated for the award by Lt. Ramon Cox, the current commander of the unit which is now called the Family Services Investigative Division.

“Although it has been six years since Det. Sgt. Baldwin-Casey hung up her uniform, she continues to work exceptionally well to spread her passion for police and community relations,” Cox said.

Several other officers from across Ohio also received distinguished awards. DeWine said all of them have “gone above and beyond” for their communities.

“We appreciate their hard work and dedication to protecting Ohio’s families.”

Baldwin-Casey is now a nationally recognized law enforcement trainer who specializes in diversity and cultural awareness.
