Council Chair Statements

Posted on: February 21, 2018



This is day of mourning in Prince George’s County.  The members of the Prince George’s County Council offer our heartfelt sympathies to the family of fallen hero Police Corporal Mujahid A. Ramzziddin, who sacrificed his own life today in the courageous defense of a Brandywine neighbor fleeing domestic violence.  A dedicated husband, father of four, and son, Corporal Ramzziddin was a decorated 14-year veteran of the Prince George’s County Police Department, Medal of Valor recipient, and former U.S. Marine. 

We also offer our deepest condolences to his fellow officers and the entire public safety community mourning the loss of their fallen colleague.  We will be forever grateful to Corporal Ramzziddin for his heart for service and ultimate sacrifice. 

The impact of domestic violence in our communities is too great.   The Council reaffirms our commitment to joining the efforts of our entire community to comprehensively address the scourge of domestic violence in Prince George’s County.
