Barrack Home to Devoted Troopers December 6, 2010

Lt. Col. Stewart Russell said there’s nothing like being a part of the Maryland State Police. Despite having its ups and down, there’s nothing like helping people both visiting and from Maryland.

Jordan, I you did a great job with your slideshow. It is truly an intersting piece, and you took some great photos. My only suggestion would to shorten your links to just one word for consistancy and clarity. Have a good break.

This was an interesting story. I like these better than reading because you get to actually see what people are talking about.

I enjoyed this slideshow. Is the man in the interview related to you? I recently did an interview with my grandfather and I learned so much from him. After the interview we went through a ton of old photos, from his childhood as well as my fathers. I found it so interesting, I hope you had this experience (if the person is related to you). Good luck to you, you are really good at what you do!

Your topic is interesting and one that I haven’t really ever thought about in depth. The photos were nice, my only suggestion being that you have more close-ups of people or of the police actually doing their police work. Maybe some action shots? Overall though I think your slideshow turned out pretty well.

I like how you included a link to the Maryland State Police website in your post. I would of liked to see the video though on your page instead of just sending me to YouTube to watch you’re video. Other than that I enjoyed the pictures and the story. For someone who never understood any of the Maryland Police work it gives me an inside look on it all.

This was a really good spin on the project. You actually went and talked to an “expert” like Broadwater although he seems like he might be related to you. Anyway, nice slideshow. It’s always interesting to learn about what goes on in the police department.

This was an interesting topic to take on. I thought that you had taken an assortment of pictures that represented the story you were trying to tell. I’m just curious, is your father apart of the Maryland State police department? I thought that you did a very good job making your slideshow capabilities evident with this slideshow.

Interesting and original content. Great portrayal of a local entity few people really encounter, and fewer wish to have to encounter. This kind of photography would serve as great company to a well written feature story.

Great job incorporating the information from your interviews into the slideshow presentation.

Jordan, this is a great story. Your pictures were fantastic (especially at :36 when you can be caught in the background) and the story idea was very strong. Your interviews only helped to support what was already great research and reporting. Commendable work, sir.

An interesting subject. I think it would be even better if you had managed to get a few more pictures of your subject or action oriented pictures. Like him practicing in the shooting gallery or a shot of the holding cells if they actually have them at the barracks. It’s a good slideshow either way, just felt like there could be more to it.

Nice story about a very admirable profession.
