Meet Noah A. Leotta
Officer Noah Aaron Leotta, loving son of Richard Leotta and Marcia Goldman, and loving brother of Shana Leotta. He was a product of Montgomery County Maryland. He was born in Holy Cross Hospital on June 7, 1991. He lived in Aspen hill and then Olney with his family. He went to Sherwood High School and played for their golf team, and after high school attended Montgomery College Rockville. Noah interned with the MCPD for 12 months under Officer John Romack, the “DUI King”. This is how Noah became keenly aware of the deadly impact of drunk drivers on our roadways and developed his passion to get drunk drivers off the road. He graduated from the police academy in July 2013. Noah loved his family, his friends, his community, and being a member of the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD). Noah had developed into a fine young man. He was dedicated, hardworking, kind, considerate, understanding, compassionate, humble, and of strong will, character and body. These traits and characteristics made him well suited to be a proud member of the MCPD.
Noah embraced fully the Montgomery County Police Code of Honor which states: “I am a Montgomery County Police Officer, a soldier of the law. To me is entrusted the honor of the Department. I must serve honestly, faithfully, and if need be, lay down my life as others have done before me, rather than swerve from the path of duty. It is my duty to obey the law and to enforce it without any consideration of class, color, creed, or condition. It is also my duty to be of service to anyone who may be in danger or distress, and at all times conduct myself that the honor of the Department be upheld.”
Though Officer Noah Aaron Leotta died in the line of duty at the age of 24 on December 10, 2015, at the hands of a drunk driver, his legacy of saving lives continues on October 1, 2016 with the enactment of Noah’s Law. Among other things, Noah’s Law requires that an interlock device be installed in the car of all convicted drunk drivers and increases suspension times in the state of Maryland.
