On Thursday, July 19th, Maryland State Police arrested Prince George’s County Police Captain Thomas Hart who has been suspended from our agency for more than three months. Hart, a 22-year veteran of the department assigned to the Bureau of Patrol, is charged with 1 count of felony assault and 1 count of misdemeanor assault stemming from a dispute yesterday with another individual who is known to Hart.

Captain Hart, 52 years old, was suspended without pay back in April stemming from a criminal investigation in an unrelated matter.

Our Internal Affairs Division is investigating.

PGPD cannot offer further comment at this time as the investigation is ongoing.
