Jernigan Institute Hosts South Baltimore Public Safety Forum

The panel on stage. From L to R: BPD Southern District Major Steve Ward, BPD Commissioner Kevin Davis, Mayor Catherine Pugh, City Council President Jack Young, State’s Attorney for Baltimore City Marilyn Mosby, and State’s Attorney’s Office Chief of Juvenile Division Gavin Pataschnick.

On Monday, September 18, the South Baltimore Public Safety Forum was held in Members Hall at the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute. We were honored to act as the host for this event because we know that to do so increases our visibility in the community, acknowledges that we are a part of this community and are therefore concerned about the welfare of its members, and gives us a chance to meet and develop meaningful relationships with community leaders. The panel included Mayor Catherine Pugh, City Council President Jack Young, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore Police Department (BPD) Commissioner Kevin Davis, BPD Southern District Major Steve Ward, and State’s Attorney’s Office Chief of Juvenile Division Gavin Pataschnick. The forum was organized by City Councilman Eric Costello, the representative for the city’s eleventh district, which is home to NFB headquarters. Approximately 350 community residents were in attendance.
