On September 13, 2013, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman and the Police Chiefs of Montgomery County posthumously awarded Plymouth Township Police Officer Bradley Michael Fox, who was murdered in the line of duty on September 13, 2012, the District Attorney’s Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor is the highest honor to be bestowed upon a law enforcement officer in Montgomery County.
According to District Attorney Ferman, “Officer Brad Fox represents the very best of our community. A dedicated Marine, police officer, son, brother, friend, teammate, husband and father, his quiet strength and commitment to family, community and country are a shining example of the best of humanity. Brad Fox was a hero, a brave soldier who chased down evil so the rest of us could be safe. He gave his life protecting our safety and security. We are grateful for his service and the ultimate sacrifice he made.” Officer Fox was survived by his wife Lyndsay, his daughter Kadence, his parents Tom and Kathy Fox and his brother James Fox. His son, Brad Fox, Jr, was born in March 2013, seven months after his death.
