Stop the Race Discrimination and Retaliation Against Officers of Color
TAKE ACTION NOW
Officers of Color with the Prince George’s Police Department have for years been forced to endure a work environment pervaded by race discrimination and retaliation that also contaminate relationships between police and the community. 11 Officers of Color filed suit in federal court challenging PGPD’s pattern and practice of unconstitutional conduct.
The discrimination and retaliation within the Prince George’s County Police Department are entrenched and systemic. This longstanding failure of leadership in the PGPD has worsened under Chief Henry Stawinski, allowing dominance by white officials, fostering racist conduct and retaliation against officers and community members of color, and undermining the effectiveness of the department to serve a community whose residents are 80 percent Black and Latinx.
Prince George’s Police Department need to end racially biased policing and unconstitutional practices. Tell the county executive we need reforms on the Prince George’s Police Department now.
Please take action now.
Prince George's County Executive, Angela D. Alsobrooks
