From Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler:
“Tonight, I responded to the call from the State of Maryland to provide deputies to assist with law enforcement efforts restoring peace and providing safety to the citizens of Baltimore.
At this time the Harford County Sheriff’s Office has sent 22 deputies to join with thousands of officers from around the state. We are prepared to stay as long as we are needed. These deputies have offered to go to Baltimore, outside of their normal duties, so that other deputies can continue to patrol Harford County and keep our citizens safe.
Please keep the communities that are impacted by violence and the law enforcement officers who are responding, in your thoughts and prayers.”
