City of Bowie
In the spring of 2016, Aubrey Crowley began their career in Human Resources as a Personnel Associate for the Bowie Police Department. Their duties then included all the roles of an HR Generalist: job posting, hiring and orientation, benefits administration, payroll, applicant and promotional testing, pension reporting, and much more—you name it, Aubrey has probably done it. This aspect of their work life was recognized in an official capacity in late 2018, when they were officially reclassified as an HR Generalist.
Since then, Mx. Crowley has relocated to the HR Office in the City of Bowie and passionately continues their work. As the sole Generalist working with the Police Department, Aubrey must maintain their Retirement Coordinator certification through the Maryland State Retirement Agency (first obtained in March of 2017) to properly review and report officer pension contributions, as well as to provide assistance to officers concerning all sorts of retirement processes. Additionally, Aubrey must be sure to remain up-to-date on legislation pertaining to retirement coordination, as well as the Code of Maryland Regulations and the Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights.
In March of 2019, Aubrey tested for and received their Associate Professional in Human Resources certification through the HR Certification Institute. They are currently studying to test for the next level certification and have shown a growing interest in the field of human and civil rights legislation and application in the workplace.
Though quiet by nature, Aubrey prides themself most on their friendly and upbeat attitude. They want to be sure the HR office is a place where all feel welcome, a respite instead of the stereotypical “principal’s office” reputation that HR so often has. They are happy to bring this mindset to the PRB Chapter and look forward to the experiences and connections to be gained by serving the Chapter as its Secretary.
