Today Baltimore County Police officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges in honor of a fallen hero.

On February 7, 2000, Sgt. Bruce Prothero was shot and killed during an armed robbery. He was a 12-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department.

Sgt. Prothero was married and the father of five children.

 Baltimore County Police Officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges today in memory of a fallen hero.

On December 31, 2001, Sergeant Mark Parry was on patrol when a drunk driver struck the unmarked police car he was riding in. The drunk driver fled the scene but was later taken into custody.

Sergeant Parry was rushed to the hospital where he died from his injuries on January 21, 2002. He was married and the father of three children.

One year ago today, Police Officer First Class Jason Schneider was fatally shot while serving a warrant at a home on Roberts Avenue in Precinct 1/Wilkens. He was 36. Officer Schneider is the ninth BCoPD member to give his life in service to his fellow citizens.

In the early morning hours of August 28, 2013, Officer Schneider responded as a member of the Tactical Unit to assist with service of a search and seizure warrant connected to the investigation of a shooting that had occurred nine days earlier. When the Tactical Unit, led by Officer Schneider, entered the home it encountered armed suspects. There was an exchange of gunfire, and Officer Schneider was hit. He died of his injuries later that morning at the University of Maryland's R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Today BCoPD members will wear mourning bands on their badges in memory of Officer Schneider.

"One year later, we continue to feel grief at Jason's loss," said BCoPD Chief Jim Johnson. "This was an experienced police officer, a leader and a friend to many in the police community. Only time will help us move past this tragedy. Meanwhile, I encourage us to seek comfort in our memories of Jason and pride in his brave and selfless sacrifice."
