PGPD Teams Up with Radio One to "Stop the Violence" Radio-Thon

Prince George’s County, Maryland …The Prince George’s County Police Department, in conjunction with Radio One, will be partnering for “Stop the Violence” day on Tuesday, February 22, 2011, from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., at Radio One, Inc., located at 5900 Princess Garden Parkway in Lanham, Maryland.

This event is being held in response to the large number of homicides that occurred in Prince George’s County at the beginning of this year. “This partnership is just the beginning in breaking the code of silence on the streets. We want the community to engage in bringing violent criminals to justice by providing information that would reduce violent crime in Prince George’s County,” said Interim Chief Mark Magaw. In an effort to combat violent crimes, representatives from the police department will be on hand to receive anonymous tips, answer questions regarding police resources, and provide crime prevention tips to the radio listeners.

The Radio-thon will be broadcasted on radio stations: WKYS 93.9 FM, WYCB 1340 AM, WOL 1450 AM, WMMJ 102.3 FM, and Praise 104.1 FM. Listeners may call in with information to (301) 731-4390.
