According to Sheriff Timothy K. Cameron, Rishel has proven himself to be a valuable member of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff's Office describes Rishel's service as follows: "Deputy First Class Rishel is a dedicated, enthusiastic officer that never complains about an assignment and volunteers first for just about everything. He has even at times left his patrol to assist with calls for service that were of an emergency nature or holding in other areas of the county. Deputy First Class Rishel took this initiative without having to be asked. He helps other officers get their work done and he is most always the first person to arrive for roll call. During the months of April and May, he carried the most calls answered and arrests."
