BALTIMORE COUNTY - You may spot a special memorial ribbon on Baltimore County Police Officers today.

The department has donned its memorial ribbon bars to commemorate Lieutenant Michael Howe, a hero who tragically passed away 15 years ago.

Lieutenant Howe, former director of the Baltimore County Police Tactical Unit, suffered a fatal stroke on August 11, 2008.


The day before his tragic passing, Howe had been active on duty at a murder-suicide scene in Precinct 4 Pikesville. After wrapping up the incident, he collapsed upon reaching his residence and was promptly admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he died the next day.

Lieutenant Howe's name is inscribed on the monument at Patriot Plaza in Towson, alongside other brave heroes who dedicated their lives to service.
