In 2007, Ulman dedicated the fire and police training center in Marriottsville as the James N. Robey Public Safety Training Center as recognition of Robey's service and commitment to funding the center.
"It is absolutely indispensable," Ulman said of the center. "It would not be there without Sen. Robey."
Robey said he "thoroughly enjoyed" his time in Annapolis, but acknowledged the legislature has made some tough decisions over the past two years.
Robey estimated he had received more threats over the last three months than he had in 32 years of law enforcement because of his support for Gov. Martin O'Malley's gun control package.
