Community in the Courthouse! Friday, January, 24!

Message from Prince George’s County State’s Attorney:

The next Community in the Courthouse is this Friday, January 24, 2014.  We will meet at 8:30 a.m. in room 0421M (ground floor) of the Prince George’s County Courthouse located on Main Street in Upper Marlboro.

We will welcome County Executive Rushern Baker. The County Executive and I will discuss our joint crime suppression efforts here in the county. County Executive Baker will give participants an update on crime statistics, and I will discuss our successful conviction rates.

As many of you know, overall crime has declined 27% over the last three years and homicides are down 38% in that same period. In addition, our conviction rates have increased at an impressive rate.

Our homicide conviction rate stands at 93%, a 17% increase in the last three years. Sexual assault convictions are at 85%.

We have seen conviction rates increase across the board and they are a testament to our law enforcement partnerships and the community for doing their civic duty as jurors and coming forward as witnesses to crime.

I am looking forward to a great conversation.  Please consider bringing a friend or neighbor to our meeting.  I would surely be interested in meeting and welcoming all those who are involved in Prince George’s County.

 

Sincerely,

Angela D. Alsobrooks

State’s Attorney
