They didn't forget that. If you recall Reese was on TV about to spill the beans about Batman's identity while they were prepping themselves at Police HQ to go get Joker, when Joker interrupted the broadcast and said he didn't want a world without Batman. So he told Gotham that if they didn't kill Reese within an hour he would blow up a hospital.

Gordon then had bigger priorities. He had to send all his man power out to evacuate the hospitals and also protect Reese from the mobs of Gothamites.
