PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. -

One year ago, Officer Brad Fox was murdered in the line of duty on the eve of his 35th birthday.

On Friday, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman and Plymouth Meeting Police Chief Joseph Lawrence hosted a Fallen Hero Plaque dedication in his honor.

The dedication happened at the site of Fox's death. He was a seven-year Plymouth Township police veteran who was killed in a shooting after a hit-and-run crash. The officer's K9 partner, "Nick," was wounded but survived.

In addition to the formal dedication of the Fallen Hero plaque at the site of Officer Fox's death, District Attorney Ferman and the Police Chiefs of Montgomery County posthumously awarded Fox the District Attorney's Medal of Honor, the highest honor to be bestowed upon a law enforcement officer in Montgomery County.

"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," Ferman said.

"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.""

Fox is survived by his wife Lynsay, 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.

Fox received the 20th Fallen Hero Plaque dedicated in Montgomery County.
