PGPD Suspends Police Officer Charged in Calvert County

The Prince George’s County Police Department has suspended a 21-year veteran of the department after the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office charged him with multiple counts of sexual assault and other offenses.

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office arrested Lieutenant John Warhurst on November 5, 2013.  He is assigned to District IV in the Bureau of Patrol. The PGPD immediately suspended the 42 year old’s police powers upon learning of the allegations.  The Prince George’s County Police Department has fully cooperated with and will continue to cooperate with the CCSO during its investigation.  The PGPD will await the outcome of the criminal case against the officer and will then take appropriate administrative action.  The officer has been suspended without pay.

Today, Police Chief Mark Magaw issued a statement reading, “This police department takes very seriously our mission of constitutional, professional and ethical policing.  We strive to be transparent in everything we do. This is our unwavering commitment to the community we serve.”
