Governor Larry Hogan signed bills sponsored by the Harford County legislators to dedicate a section of Route 924 as “Heroes Highway” in honor of two fallen Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Thursday, May 19, 2016.

The House of Delegates version of the legislation, House Bill 1624, sponsored by Republican Delegate Teresa Reilly of Whiteford, and the Senate version, Senate Bill 1104, were signed during a ceremony at the State House in Annapolis late Thursday morning.

“It was a real honor being there today, among our own Harford Sheriff [Jeffrey Gahler] and many of the deputies,” said Reilly, who attended the signing.

She said representative of other law enforcement agencies were present, along with relatives of the slain deputies, Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Deputy First Class Mark Logsdon. The deputies were shot and killed in the line of duty Feb. 10.

“We all stood behind the governor and witnessed him signing Heroes Highway into law,” Reilly said.

The Senate version is sponsored by Harford’s three Republican senators, Sens. Wayne Norman, Robert Cassilly and J.B. Jennings.
