Office of the State's Attorney for Prince George's County
MOBILIZING THE COMMUNITY TO STOP AND PREVENT CRIME
State’s Attorney Aisha N. Braveboy understands that to be effective, stopping crime must be a community-wide affair. The Community Affairs Unit was created to help the State’s Attorney involve the entire community in the effort to make Prince George's County a safe place to live, work, and play.
COMMUNITY AFFAIRS DIVISON
Through work with civic and neighborhood organizations, public appearances by the State’s Attorney and other staff, community meetings, and a wide range of specialized outreach activities, the unit works to educate the public about crime and the criminal justice system, explain the role and function of the State’s Attorney’s Office, and increase community involvement.
The unit is also taking the lead in convening community forums and other arenas for public discussion of alternative approaches and to involve more people in diversion, reentry, and crime prevention activities.
COMMUNITY IN THE COURTHOUSE
To foster open communication between the Office and the community, the State’s Attorney sponsors regular Community in the Courthouse meetings to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas. These meetings provide an opportunity for residents to learn about the criminal justice system and the initiatives of the State’s Attorney’s Office. During the monthly sessions attendees can ask questions, voice their concerns and engage with State’s Attorney Braveboy and her team. Our courthouse sessions re held the last Tuesday of every month from March through October. You can register in advance by clicking on the link below.
