From Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler:
Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and DFC Mark Logsdon of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office tragically died in the line of duty on Wednesday, February 10, 2016, while faithfully serving the citizens of Harford County. Both Deputies were exceptional individuals, consummate professionals, and more importantly valued friends to all.
There is no way we can fully express our feelings of pride in the actions of our deputies who were faithful to the end, who did not shrink from their responsibilities, who did not cower in the face of danger, but courageously made the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Harford County.
The events of February 10th have greatly impacted our beloved Harford County community in so many ways. The men and women of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office would like to recognize the overwhelming support shown to our Office during this difficult time. The outpouring of love for Pat and Mark, for their families, and for our Sheriff’s Office family has been tremendous. We are so grateful for your compassion, generosity, and unwavering support during this very difficult period. We are honored to serve this community.
Please keep Pat and Mark’s families in your thoughts and prayers. Never forget to look out for and take care of one another; our time on Earth is short and precious.
With deep admiration and respect,
Jeffrey R. Gahler, Sheriff
