Maryland’s Phased Re-Opening Continues
Counties Continue, Launch Support Efforts
As Maryland sees improving data from its struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic, the state re-opening plan continues stage by stage. Economic activities are re-starting, guided by local data and decision-making, and public health best practices. Testing will be a major element of next steps, to better track and combat the virus in the weeks ahead. Conduit Street continues to monitor news from across the counties, and maintains an updated resource for county officials and others monitoring these essential topics.

Conduit Street Podcast Corner:
Everett Sesker, a law enforcement consultant at the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT), conducts training to help police officers understand and overcome implicit bias, as well as assesses and identifies potential risks that may hinder the reputation, safety, security, and operations of law enforcement agencies across Maryland.
Mr. Sesker retired at the rank of Major from the Prince George’s County Police Department after 22 years of service. He has held command positions in training, narcotics, community relations, district stations, headquarters, and public relations. Prior to joining LGIT, Everett was appointed as the executive director of the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission where he worked closely with law enforcement leaders and policymakers to oversee and improve the accreditation process for police officers.
