PGPD Partnership with Radio One for "Stop the Violence" Day Radio-Thon

Prince George’s County, Maryland …The Prince George’s County Police Department partnered with Radio One for the “Stop the Violence” Day Radio-Thon yesterday from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., at Radio One, Inc., located at 5900 Princess Garden Parkway in Lanham, Maryland.

The event was being held in response to the large number of homicides that occurred in Prince George’s County at the beginning of this year. The Radio-Thon was broadcasted throughout the day on Radio One’s stations WKYS 93.9 FM, WYCB 1340 AM, WOL 1450 AM, WMMJ 102.3 FM, and Praise 104.1 FM. Police officers were stationed in a call center where they fielded calls from listeners who provided pertinent information ranging from crime related tips to suggestions and concerns. Police officers were interviewed by the radio personalities where they were able to solicit assistance from the community on high profile cases and announced crime initiatives used to combat the violent crime that plagued Prince George’s County early this year. The Radio-Thon provided an opportunity to bridge the gap between the police department, residents of Prince George’s County, and the radio community.

For additional information, contact the Press Information Office at (301) 772-4710.
