Suspended PGPD Captain Charged with Assault

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.
