Julio Valcarcel conducted the demonstration and answered  several questions from both the Governor and Senator Mikulski. “I was very  pleased to hear Governor O'Malley mention CapWIN specifically by name, and  Julio did a nice job of promoting CapWIN's role in supporting if officer safety  in the field,” said Acting Executive Director Roddy Moscoso.
