ICYMI: New Crime Prevention Efforts and Youth Engagement Week
I recently held a press conference with our Office of Community Relations, our Police Department, Reverend Tony Lee of Community of Hope AME, and several community partners to announce new crime prevention efforts. As you know, jurisdictions across the country are seeing a rise in violent crime, especially among young people. That’s why we have announced several new initiatives through our Hope in Action Anti-Violence Project and our Police Department to target additional resources toward our youth and young adults.
We also recognized Youth Engagement Week in Prince George’s County. Throughout the week, we highlighted some of the many ways the County is creating opportunities for young people to continue to grow and thrive.
