Prince George’s church announces partnership with County Police for Camp Springs community enhancement

Youth and a deputy Sheriff at Beltway Community Day.

On February 29, 2012, the Beltway Church of Christ and the Prince George’s County Police Department announced that they will partner to enhance the Camp Springs area.  This collaboration is intended to address the issues facing the community and to improve the quality of life and well-being of residents.

The primary objective is to proactively link government resources with the faith community.  Police, social services, and local businesses in the Camp Springs community will all be leveraged.

Private First Class Radames Gonzalez, Jr. of District IV, Community Oriented Policing Service (COPS) has been assigned to work with the church.   The COP’s Unit is a specialized unit specifically trained in Community Policing Concepts that handles individual community needs, as well as assisting with Civic Associations and Neighborhood Watch programs.

Planned activities will include neighborhood watch, children’s camp, clothing/food distributions, career assistance, parenting classes, computer classes, youth nutrition and lunch programs, immunization programs, Spanish language classes and success skills seminars.

Larry Mack, a deacon and contact at the church states that this partnership highlights that the church and the police department can work together to serve the needs of the community and afford citizens to experience the greatest positive impact.  This approach has all the ingredients for a mutually successful practical partnership.

The Beltway Church of Christ is located at 6000 Davis Boulevard in Camp Springs.
