Candidates tout qualifications to join Prince George’s police accountability board

September 28, 2022

Seventeen candidates who applied for a position on the Prince George’s County police accountability board offered similar attributes Tuesday, which they say are needed for service: integrity, experience and love for community. Each was allowed to speak for three minutes during a County Council virtual information session; they range from community leaders, a retired sociology faculty member from the University of Maryland in College Park, and a paralegal. One of the main goals, according to county legislation, will be for the board and an administrative charging committee to “reflect the racial, gender, gender-identity, sexual orientation and cultural diversity of the county…and include members with a range of professional or lived experiences.”
