The Catholic Business Network of Prince George’s County (CBN-PG) proudly announces its selection of the 2016 Hometown Hero, Henry P. Stawinski III , Prince George’s County Police Chief. A lifelong county resident and a DeMatha High School graduate, his nomination as Hometown Hero was unanimously approved by the CBN-PG Board. Chief Stawinski certainly lives out the principles of his Catholic faith daily as he serves the County.


When his father was a Prince George’s County police officer and Hank was a young boy, the younger Stawinski would witness his father interacting throughout the community and would marvel at what a police officer is able to learn about human nature and human behavior by performing their job. Hank followed in his father’s footsteps and became a member of the county police department. After 23 years of service, Hank Stawinski was selected as the police department’s Chief, with unanimous approval by the County Council.

Hank Stawinski is a lifelong Prince George’s County resident. He graduated from DeMatha High School in 1986 and received his biology degree from Boston College before entering the Police Academy in the early 1990s.

In the two decades of service prior to being named police chief, he rose in the ranks of the department, serving as a homicide detective, commander of a busy district in the county, becoming deputy chief over daily operations and then interim chief prior to being named Chief of Police.

In his first month as interim chief, Stawinski was faced with addressing an investigation into an elementary school volunteer arrested on child pornography charges involving more than a dozen students as well as the slaying of a 2-year-old girl and her mother, allegedly over non-payment of child support. He is well known for his data-driven methodology, especially when it comes to analyzing crime reports. Through his leadership and emphasis on current data, the police department is now managed in real-time and can respond with appropriate resources accordingly. This leads to a much more effective operation.

After being sworn in as Chief, we have seen him perform in a stellar manner during the aftermath of the recent slaying of one of their fellow officers. He has performed his duties in stellar fashion and with the utmost care and concern for those most directly affected including the family of the slain officer and for the fellow officers that served with him.

One of the key strengths Chief Stawinski brings to the police department and to the office of chief is the strengthening of relationships not only within the department but especially throughout the entire community of Prince George’s County.

The Catholic Business Network is delighted to recognize and honor Chief Stawinski as the 2016 Hometown Hero and in honoring him, we also recognize the women and men who serve as police officers to protect and defend the citizens of Prince George’s County.

Chief Stawinski will be recognized as the 2016 Hometown Hero at the 18th Annual Awards Banquet of the Catholic Business Network of Prince George’s County on Tuesday evening, May 3, 2016 at the Greenbelt Marriott. For more information and to purchase tickets visit our Awards Banquet page.
