Oct 29-31 PGPD Community Services Division Safe Treat Initiative

The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Community Services Division will be hosting a Safe Treat Initiative to promote personal safety awareness and education.

The Community Services Division, along with the Robbery Suppression Teams (RST), Special Assignment Teams (SAT), and Community Oriented Police Officers (COPS), will be on hand at their respective districts to assist with this initiative.  Each station will decorate their lobby area to allow a safe place for parents to bring their children for trick-or-treating. Parents and children will be able to speak with a COPS officer who will share safety tips and information about the Explorer and Police Athletic League Programs.

Children are encouraged to come in costume and receive candy; however no child will be turned away if they are not in costume. COPS and Community Services Division officers will be conducting high visibility patrol during this initiative.  They will provide candy and literature to children in the community.
