(LARGO – February 6, 2020) – Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced today that she is implementing 46 of the 50 police reform recommendations that were submitted in a comprehensive report by the Police Reform Work Group that she created in July 2020.
“I am confident that the reforms we are implementing today will help our Police Department better serve the community and become a model for the nation,” said Alsobrooks. “I want to thank the members of our Police Reform Work Group for developing these insightful recommendations after months of a thorough review of our Police Department and significant community engagement.”
The Police Reform Work Group worked for five months to conduct a comprehensive study and review of the Police Department, creating a recommendation report that was submitted to County Executive Alsobrooks on December 4, 2020. The recommendations spanned five key areas for improvement, including community engagement; employee recruitment and retention; financial management; independent oversight, compliance, and integrity; and internal policies and regulation. Out of the 50 proposed reforms from the Work Group, the County Executive adopted 35 as written, amended 11, and omitted four.
“It was an honor to be part of the Police Reform Work Group,” said Judge Maureen Lamasney, Police Reform Work Group Co-Chair. “I am looking forward to seeing our recommendations implemented and receiving feedback from the community and Police department.”
Several recommendations that were implemented under the five key areas are included below:
Employee Recruitment and Retention
Independent Oversight, Compliance, and Integrity
Internal Policies and Regulation
The Final Adoption Report with all the recommendations is available for review at
