Photos From The Heroes Gala

On September 8th, 2012, the Prince George’s County Police Department held its first Heroes Gala recognizing the 51 law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in Prince George’s County.  Twenty-seven of the fallen served the Prince George's County Police Department.  The remaining 24 represented 12 allied agencies at the local, state and federal levels.  Hundreds attended the event at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in the National Harbor.  The fallen officers and their families are in our thoughts. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten.
