Local law enforcement agencies are working together.
Local law enforcement agencies are continuing to work together to make sure that the G8 Summit, taking place next month at Camp David, in Thurmont, goes smooth and safely.
"We are liaising with state, local and federal agencies and continuing to work through this. One of the things that we have done for the past two Presidential Inaugurations is sent officers down to Washington d.c., which gives them good experience to work with large crowds," said Police Chief Kim Dine.
"All of the affected agencies, covering the various jurisdictions, are meeting regularly and exchanging information, and that is a constant and ongoing process," continued Dine.
In the past, at other G8 Summit meetings, there have been many protestors, but it's not known yet how many demonstrators are expected in the area. "All of those concerns are part of a larger planning effort," Dine responded.
On May 18th and 19th world leaders, diplomats and possibly many demonstrators will converge on the town of Thurmont for the G8 Summit.
