The Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department is supporting Sergeant Suzie Johnson of the City of Hyattsville Police Department in her quest to become America's Most Wanted All-Star.  We have provided a link at the bottom of the page for members of our Department to support one of our hometown heroes!!!

Sergeant Suzie Johnson was just six years old when robbers broke into her Hyattsville home. When police arrested them before they could get away she knew she wanted to be a police officer. The first police officer in her family and the highest ranking female officer in the Hyattsville Police Department, Sergeant Johnson has spent nearly eighteen years serving the community she calls home. Sergeant Johnson started in law enforcement in 1990 serving the residents of Washington, DC with the Metropolitan Police Department. Since joining the Hyattsville Police Department in July 1993, she has served as a patrol officer, led the Community Action Team, and now heads the Criminal Investigation Division. Her work has gone well beyond the typical responsibilities of a police officer. Sergeant Johnson spent seven years coordinating the Sonny Frazier Toy Drive, a program that reached more than 2,000 children at the holidays and she chaired her city's National Night Out Against Crime for six years.


Most recently, Sergeant Johnson has managed the city's outreach efforts to aid a family who suffered an unthinkable tragedy. Their home burned to the ground, claiming the lives of two of their four daughters, and destroying everything they owned. With community partners, Sergeant Johnson has personally raised over $8,000 for the family, as well as significant donations of clothing and household goods.

Sergeant Johnson is not just committed to the work of the Hyattsville Police Department. She is truly committed to the community. Her two children attend Hyattsville schools, and she has served as a softball and basketball coach through the Catholic Youth Organization and Northwestern High School. Known as "Officer Suzie" in the community, she knows kids by name and never hesitates to reach out to help.

You can vote once-a-day!!!
