Upper Marlboro, MD… The Sheriff’s Bureau of Court Services, in cooperation with the Prince George’s County, Upper Marlboro Courthouse, will conduct a “Shelter in Place” – Emergency Preparedness Training Drill today, in the Bourne Wing of the Courthouse. The drill will close the Bourne Wing (including the Commissioners Entrance) from 1p.m. to 3p.m., but will not affect the building’s Marbury or Duvall Wing public access points.
Chief Assistant Sheriff Darrin C. Palmer said, “Courthouse security is a critical undertaking every day, for the safety and wellbeing of those who pass through its doors. Emergency preparedness training drills allow us to test ourselves against our own emergency plans, so that we can review and revise as needed.”
The drill will only affect courthouse employees, and will be announced several times over the building public address system prior to commencing.
