STATEMENT - COUNCIL CHAIR CALVIN S. HAWKINS, II, RESPONDS TO THREATS AGAINST HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

The Prince George’s County Council welcomes the news that following the investigation of a bomb threat at Bowie State University, a shelter-in-place order has been lifted and surrounding communities are secure.  Sadly, such threats were visited upon several other HistoricalLy Black Colleges and Universities as well, and the Council is encouraged that an investigation is ongoing.  We thank Bowie State University President Dr. Aminta Breaux and law enforcement officials for their quick and thorough response to keep the BSU community and our residents safe.
