Prince George's Police Dept. Participates in 28th Annual National Night Out

Police Chief Mark Magaw and county officials joined community leaders and neighborhood civic groups for the 28th Annual National Night Out Tuesday, August 2nd.

The events sponsored by National Association of Town Watch, heightened public awareness of crime and drug prevention programs and generated support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts throughout the county.  The interaction in the communities strengthened neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and also showed a unity in the fight against criminal activity.

“National Night out is an annual event that promotes strong relationships between the police department and the community.  This event provides a great opportunity for the community and police to unite and work together in solving community issues.  Over the years this event has become a key factor in reducing crime and keeping our communities safe.” said Chief Mark Magaw.
