Police & Fire Holiday Shop-Along

Police & Fire Holiday Shop-Along

The Greenbelt Fraternal Order of Police, Greenbelt Volunteer Fire Department and Greenbelt Police Department are proud to announce that the first annual “Police & Fire Holiday Shop-Along” will take place Sunday, December 19th at Beltway Plaza. This program partners less fortunate children from the community with Greenbelt Police Officers and Firefighters, allowing the children to purchase Christmas presents for themselves as well as family members. Each child is allotted a budget of $100 and is transported to a local store to make the purchases. The children are then brought back to a “present wrapping” party where they can enjoy pizza while they wrap their gifts. The children will be selected to participate through nominations by their elementary school.

New Law Changes Trial Date Procedures for Traffic Citations

New Law Changes Trial Date Procedures for Traffic Citations

The Greenbelt Police Department is reminding motorists that if they receive a traffic citation on or after January 1st, 2011, a newly passed Maryland law requires the driver to request a trial date if they want one, instead of a trial date being automatically assigned as was done previously. 

Under the new law, which takes effect January 1st, 2011, drivers who receive a traffic citation have three options:

1 - Pay the citation’s preset fine;

2 - Request a hearing regarding sentencing and disposition in lieu of a trial,

      (meaning you do not dispute the truth of the facts as alleged in the  

      citation, but you wish to be heard regarding sentencing); or

3 - Request a trial at a date, time and place determined by the court. 

Saturday: Paint Branch Trash Cleanup

Surfrider Foundation and the Anacostia Watershed Society are teaming up this weekend to clean up Paint Branch. Join us on Saturday, November 20, from 10 am to 1 pm. Please sign up for the Paint Branch event prior.

Paint Branch flows through Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. In 1974, Paint Branch was designated as Natural Trout Waters by the state of Maryland, and the stream supports a population of Brown Trout. This cleanup will help protect this fragile habitat, and stop the trash from flowing downstream.

Meet in the Acredale Park parking lot (first lot on the left after you turn onto Metzerott Rd from Route 1). Dress for cold weather and mud (long pants, sturdy shoes, etc). Cleanup supplies and snacks provided. 

Prince George's County Department of Corrections Holds Chess Tournament

The Prince George’s County Department of Corrections held a chess tournament for juvenile offenders last week as part of teaching them how to manage anger, think and plan ahead.

“This program has had a calming effect in the unit and it has improved their grades,” said Tournament Creator Matthew Winston.  “It has taught them that if they make mistakes, there are consequences and they are learning to be more complimentary of each other.”

Winston is a Board of Education employee who also teaches math to the juvenile offenders and the chess tournament is part of his teaching method.  Every youth incarcerated at the facility is required to learn chess.

“Conflicts among the group are fewer now than before and all of them are learning about concentration and patience,” Winston said.
