Prince George's County has a documented history of police excessive force and racial profiling. That is why the County Council must pass a strong Police Accountability Board – county residents deserve better.
Between 2016 and 2019, there were more than 6,800 use of force cases, of which 94 percent involved use of force against Black or Brown residents. The department’s internal review process decided that of all these 6,800 uses of force, 99.8 percent were “justified.” There is no justice without accountability.
Tell the Prince George's County Council and County Executive to fulfill the strong Police Accountability Board that residents deserve now.
