Prince George’s County Police Teams Up with the State’s Attorney’s Office for a Safe Summer

Prince George’s County, Maryland… The Prince George’s County Police will be teaming up with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office, Parole and Probation, Department of Juvenile Services, area police departments and other County agencies in a multi-dimensional approach to provide a safe environment to our communities during the approaching summer months.

Areas throughout Prince George’s County will receive extra attention during the summer initiative. The Department will focus on preventing crime and will partner with the SAO to provide arrestees and repeat offenders with “wrap-around services” that will include employment opportunities, counseling, and substance abuse support. The SAO will provide enhanced prosecutorial attention and will also assist with dealing with properties that are causing a visual or criminal nuisance and work to limit the impact of businesses that generate a high number of calls-for-service.

“The Department maintains a strong proactive stance against crime and we are dedicated to protecting our residents. By working closely together, we can achieve great results. We want to demonstrate a united front in our fight against those that chose a life of crime and provide positive alternatives to those that want to turn their lives around,” said Interim Police Chief Mark Magaw.

“We will assist the PGPD by directing our community prosecutors to dedicate a substantial amount of their activities in the focus areas. We will also concentrate on enhancing our prosecutions and parole violations of those repeat offenders, who are the root of many of our crime concerns. I commend the PGPD for their bold action – an action which will continue to decrease crime levels to the lowest in two generations,” said Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks.
