Public Safety

As I travel throughout Prince George’s County, I hear time and time again of the need to reduce crime and have increased funding for Fire/EMS services. As a person who has family members serving our county in the PGPD and PGFD, I strongly favor any measure that will appropriately fund and equip our county’s Department of Public Safety.

 

Crime rates in our county have historically been higher than some of our neighboring counties, such as Anne Arundel and Montgomery. Despite this, through continued funding and efforts from religious, community and governmental leaders, we have seen several crime statistics drop in numbers over the years. This pattern of decline in our crime rates can be directly attributed to these individuals and it is my hope that their efforts will be continued.

 

Our county's crime rates are not the only issue that face public safety. I am quite aware of the problems that Fire/EMS services encounter. Many stations are staffed with volunteers, sometimes full time. However, many of these volunteers are full-time firefighters in other counties due to the lack of salary and benefits funding in Prince George's County.

This is an issue that must be quickly addressed to ensure that our Fire/EMS stations are fully staffed with well trained individuals.
