“Purple Light Nights®” Partner City of Hyattsville Lights Up

Upper Marlboro, MD… The City of Hyattsville, a partner in this year’s “Purple Light Nights®” community campaign to raise awareness and a unified voice against domestic violence during Domestic Violence Month in October bathed its City Administration/ Police Department building in purple light.   
Of the city’s participation in the campaign, Police Chief Doug Holland said, “As law enforcement we always hope for an opportunity to prevent a crime from happening. We completely agree with the goal of awareness as a tool of prevention because the more citizens know about domestic violence, the more likely they are to urge a victim or an abuser to seek help.  And, we think our Administration and HPD building looks pretty awesome in purple and more importantly delivers a powerful and important message.” 

“Chief Holland and the City of Hyattsville are good partners with whom we share common goals for the safety and well-being of the members of the community. We’re delighted the city joined the Purple Light Nights campaign and we look forward to working with them throughout the year,” said Sheriff Melvin High.  

The Office of the Sheriff launched “Purple Light Nights®” in Maryland in 2014, connecting Prince George’s County and the state with a list of cities and counties in over 30 states, and in Canada and 18 villages in Guam. The Purple Light Nights name and logo are approved Federal trademarks of the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force.
