Neighborhood Walk in summer 2010

Due to the recent rise in crime activities in the area and safety concerns around the north gate of Greenbelt Metro, there will be a neighborhood safety walk in north College Park, tomorrow.

The walk will start at 6 pm tomorrow at the Lackawanna and 53rd Ave intersection.

PGPD’s Community liaison officer POFC Black will be there to answer any safety related question and the recent criminal activities in the area.

I took a similar walk last summer. During the walk, we distributed public safety related pamphlets to the neighbors, placed them on the windshields of the vehicles parked on the streets. We talked to a few neighbors and told them about the recent spike in crime incidents, including a much publicized assault incident .
