Upper Marlboro, MD… On Saturday March 15, 2014 the Bowie Library was filled with Pink and Green, as the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Psi Epsilon Omega Chapter hosted the 7th Annual Domestic Violence Symposium “Healthy Relationship – Part II”. The event was led by a panel, which was comprised of Couples (both married and dating) and expert relationship professionals. The descendants of the “Twenty Pearls” invited the Sheriff’s Office to not only participate in symposium but also presented us with teddy bears.
We were honored and appreciative to receive several dozen teddy bears from the members of the Psi chapter. “Thank you for accepting your part in the Village (Community), because it takes a village to end domestic violence.” Sheriff High stated. The bears are mostly given to children who our deputies come in contact with during domestic violence situations they respond to.
