UMD Police Officers Among Those Honored at UMD Veterans Day Service

The University of Maryland Division of Student Affairs organized a Veterans Day program to honor University students, faculty and staff who who served in the Armed Forces. Several police officers and civilian employees of the University of Maryland Department of Public Safety were recognized.  Captain Robert Mueck, former Army and Coast Guard Reserve, and current Deputy Commander of the UMDPS Support Services Bureau spoke at the event.  The event took place November 9, 2012, at the University of Maryland Memorial Chapel. 

"The parallels drawn between military and law enforcement service are vast and the line between them is often blurred. Both are fighting a war—with our military fighting overseas and our law enforcement often fighting the war on crime domestically. Both professions require courage and bravery—and breed American heroes." - Craig Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

We are forever indebted to our officers and employees, and all veterans who served this great nation in military service.
