PGPD to Participate in CRIME TIME - Get Home Safely Initiative

     Prince George’s County, Maryland…The Prince George’s County Police Department will be partnering with the Adele H. Stamp Student Union - Center for Campus Life, University of Maryland Police, and the Student Government Association in the CRIME TIME - Get Home Safely Initiative.

     On August 27, 2010 from 10pm - 1am, Prince George's County Police and officers from University of Maryland Police will be out campaigning on the Route 1 corridor handing out crime prevention safety tips literature.

     Police want to remind students that many documented assaults/robberies occur between 2:00am and 4:00am and that persons walking alone are particularly vulnerable.  Students should:

*         Be aware of your surroundings

*         Plan your walk ahead of time

*         Avoid walking alone

*         Use lighted paths

*         Look for blue light emergency phone locations

*         Use Shuttle UM evening routes

*         Save important numbers in your phone:

     -          Police escorts 301.405.3555

     -          N.I.T.E. Ride 301.314.6483 (NITE)

     -          Police Emergency 911 or #3333
