FREDERICK – Partners in public safety and law enforcement, county and municipal agencies and community organizations are coordinating at all levels to address public safety issues related to the upcoming G-8 Summit, May 18-19, at Camp David.

Information will be provided as it becomes available on these sites, as well as through public service announcements, news releases and media advisories.

The Information Center is also coordinating efforts with the Tourism Council of Frederick County, Inc., which has prepared a new website,, to primarily serve international, local and regional media covering the G-8 Summit. The website provides useful media resources such as area information and local history in multiple languages; royalty-free images and video b-roll that can downloaded by many reporters at the same time; story ideas; local resources, and frequently asked questions.

In the interest of public safety, citizens are encouraged to report suspicious activity to their local law enforcement agency or call 9-1-1; remember, “If you see something, say something.”
