WHAT: Community forum to discuss public safety in Howard County
WHEN: Monday, September 23, 2019 at 7 p.m.
WHERE: Wilde Lake Middle School cafeteria (10481 Cross Fox Ln, Columbia, MD 21044)
I am glad to see this forum happening in Howard County. There are some that have been concerned with “what looks like” rising crime in Howard County and would love to know that our officials have a plan (if crime is on the rise) to address it.
We are no where near many of our neighboring counties when it comes to crime…but it does not mean that we should not discuss what we are seeing right here in Howard County.
I hope we hear a lot of information on what things have been like in past years and where we are today in 2019.
