PRESS RELEASE

District 1 Delegation to Meet with Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention
Cumberland, MD, April 21, 2015 – Senator Edwards, Delegates Beitzel, Buckel and McKay announce the Western Region Meet & Greet Forum scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Thursday, April 30, at the College Center Building/Theatre of Allegany College of Maryland. Registration will start at 9:30 a.m.

The forum will provide an avenue to discuss how to curb the rising crime in our area with the help of state resources from the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention.

GOCCP’s Executive Director Christopher Shank will share the mission of his office in preventing crime and encouraging public safety in Western Maryland. He looks forward to an open discussion and meeting concerned residents and newly-elected and appointed public officials.

“My idea was to see if we could build on the crime reduction success we’ve had in the City of Cumberland through the use of the Safe Streets Initiative,” said Del. Mike McKay, who requested the Meet & Greet Forum. “I’d like to use and extend that model throughout all of Allegany County.”
McKay is a former member of the Safe Streets Initiative Advisory Board, which is a GOCCP-funded program.

“Increased crime and ensuring public safety is a major concern of our community and our delegation,” said Del. Jason Buckel. “We won’t accept the current level of crime and drug activity plaguing Allegany County, and this forum is a first step toward bringing state and local resources together in a coordinated manner to make our area safer and tougher on crime.”

GOCCP is Maryland’s one stop shop for resources to improve public safety. The office exists to educate, connect and empower Maryland's citizens and public safety entities through innovative funding, strategic planning, crime data analysis, best practices research and results-oriented customer service.

This is another event where the citizens can be seen and heard so that we may further emphasize the changes we all seek in a constructive manner.

When you fail to attend these meetings with officials present, the overall message is we have a community that is not engaged or is dis-interested and that is a certain stepping stone to losing our collective voice and support.
