The killings of two Sheriff's Office deputies in Abingdon Tuesday, the first such deaths for the agency in more than a century, have touched off an unprecedented wave of support and sympathy across the state and country.
For the many who work, or have worked, in Harford County's extensive law enforcement community, the deaths of Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon hit especially close to home.
Everyone from Gov. Larry Hogan to the U.S. Secret Service have publicly expressed their sympathy to the Sheriff's Office.
"You look around, and the response was unmatched," Sheriff Jeff Gahler said at a Thursday press briefing.
