Prince George’s County’s Public Safety Family Mourns Passing of William Milligan




The Prince George’s County Police Department and the county’s public safety agencies are mourning the loss of a true public servant, William “Bill” Milligan. For decades, Bill was a fixture in the county’s public safety community. He was the driving force behind the county’s annual Public Safety Food Basket Program. Now in its 35th year, the program provides food to families in our community who are in need during the holidays. He knew many families rely on this assistance and despite his failing health, Bill was still actively involved in this year’s program.



As the Executive Director of the Prince George’s County Public Safety Assistance Program, Bill was also an unwavering supporter of the men and women in public safety. Every year, he oversaw the tremendous effort of organizing the County’s Public Safety Valor Award ceremony which honors the police officers, sheriff’s deputies, fire and EMS personnel as well as Department of Corrections personnel who serve with distinction. We are all grateful for his devotion and friendship.

“Bill dedicated his life in service to not only the county’s public safety agencies but the citizens of Prince George’s County. He didn’t seek praise for his tireless efforts. He didn’t want that attention. His dedication came from a true passion of helping others. The lives of thousands of our neighbors were enriched every year by his efforts. We will feel this loss not just this holiday season or at the next Valor Awards ceremony but for years to come,” Chief Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski.

To all who knew and loved Bill, the Prince George’s County Police family offers our deepest condolences. He was 77 years old.
