County Executive Closes Out Final Running the Beat Event with Remarks

               In support of the county-wide Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative (TNI), the Prince George’s County Police Department is Running the Beat.  Police officers and dignitaries are participating in the final run of the year in Palmer Park.

 Running the Beat began April 30th in Langley Park as part of TNI, a plan to improve the quality of life in focus area communities.  Throughout the summer, the County Executive has joined police commanders, academy recruits, and other government officials in morning runs in our six focus areas: Langley Park, East Riverdale/Bladensburg, Kentland/Palmer Park, Suitland/Coral Hills, Hillcrest Heights/Marlow Heights, and Glassmanor/Oxon Hill.  Together, approximately 40 miles were covered in an effort to engage the community and identify issues in need of the government’s attention.   

A news conference will follow the run, and will include examples of neighborhood improvements.
