A nationally-known expert on law enforcement will deliver the keynote address Oct. 25 for the Prince George's County Drug Policy Coalition's (PGCDPC) annual dinner fundraiser and silent auction.

U.S. Marshal Matthew Fogg will speak on "Promoting Health and Justice" for the event which begins at 6 p.m. and takes place at the Newton White Mansion, 2708 Enterprise Rd., in Mitchellville, Md.

"We are thrilled to have Matthew Fogg share some of the highlights of his amazing career in reducing the ravages of drug trafficking in our communities throughout the country," said PGCDPC President Valencia Campbell.

Fogg, who specializes in police brutality issues, is a retired chief deputy U.S. marshal with 32 years of public service experience. He was recognized by the National Aeronautic and Space Administration for his efforts as a first responder during the 9-11 attacks in New York City, and has received numerous awards, including the NAACP's prestigious Breaking Barriers Award.

Fogg also won a landmark $4 million verdict against the U.S. Department of Justice in 1998.

He currently serves as a national vice president of Blacks in Government and as national vice president of the Federally Employed Women.
