Former Montgomery Co. officer guilty of police database misuse

GREENBELT — A former Montgomery County police officer accused of illegally using computers to help her drug-dealing fiance has pleaded guilty in the case.

Thirty-seven-year-old Delores Culmer of Silver Spring pleaded guilty Wednesday to obtaining unauthorized information from protected government computers for her personal financial gain or commercial advantage. According to a plea agreement, Culmer improperly accessed law enforcement databases on at least 20 occasions, including performing a “wanted persons” check on her boyfriend and a friend of her boyfriend’s.

Culmer faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced June 13.


  1. Lock the TRICK up….Lock her up and DO NOT allow her protective custody. It is scum like this that make it bad for the decent (are there any decent) police; law enforcement folk out there.

    Lock this TRICK UP for at least 5 years. But, we all know she’ll get a slap on the wrist which simply proves, again, that Crim does pay. Just look at the criminals calling themselves ‘elected officials’…

  2. If I remember correctly, one of the things she looked up were the tags to an undercover police car following her druggie thug of a boyfriend. She needs to go under the jail.
