Community Crime Forum on Rising Crime


“Juvenile crime is a serious concern, especially considering recent events at Bowie State University and Bowie High School. It is important for us to examine the root of this problem, and the community forum is an opportunity for District 4 residents to engage with government, understand how public safety officials are addressing the issue, hear proposed legislative solutions, and learn ways that we as a community might support their efforts.” 

Prince George's County Council Member Ingrid Watson
