Prince George’s County Council Member Ingrid S. Watson (District 4), in response to rising concerns surrounding juvenile crime, will host a Community Forum on Rising Crime: A Juvenile Crime Conversation, on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. on the campus of Bowie State University in the Student Center Ballroom. 

The Community Forum will feature State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy, Police Chief Malik Aziz, Prince George’s County Public Schools Superintendent Millard House, II, and Maryland State Senator Ron Watson as special guests. Participants will also hear from Bowie State University President, Dr. Aminta Breaux. In addition to receiving public safety updates and information, residents will have an opportunity to ask questions, share community concerns, and contribute to the development of comprehensive solutions through roundtable discussions.  

Council Member Watson says the Community Forum on Rising Crime aims to engage residents, law enforcement, educators, legislators, juvenile justice advocates, and other stakeholders in discussions to explore effective strategies for preventing and combating juvenile 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.”  

Residents, local organizations, and media outlets are encouraged to attend and participate in the community forum. This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Councildistrict4@co.pg.md.us or 301.952.3094.
