Anne Arundel County Health Officer Dr Nilesh Kalyanaraman on disparity in COVID19 cases with AfricaMaryland Governor Larry Hogan directed the Maryland Department of Health to begin publishing everything that is available on racial and ethnic breakdowns on #COVID19 cases, with updates as more data becomes available.

1430 Connection / Annapolis Police DepartmentOn this week's 1430 Connection, Sgt. Amy Miguez and Sgt. Nicole Vaden join WNAV's Donna Cole in the studio for a discussion about Annapolis Cares & Project Lifesaver. They also discuss some upcoming events and other programs, as well as the need for bicycle locks for city kids.
Annapolis Cares - The Annapolis Police Department recognizes that people with cognitive conditions or diseases may need a different approach from officers. For example, they may be sensitive to loud noises and respond to them in an emotional or physical way or they may have difficulty communicating verbally. Annapolis Cares involves providing the police department with information to alert officers that they or a family member may need a different approach from officers. Additionally, addresses in the city can be flagged and when an Annapolis police officer responds to that address they will be alerted that someone at that address is enrolled in the Annapolis Cares Project Lifesaver program.
Project Lifesaver - Project Lifesaver is for residents that, due to a medical condition or disease, may wander. The program utilizes FM band radio transmitters and a tracking system to assist in search and rescue operations. Residents and/or their caregivers can apply to join the program and, if they qualify, will be required to enter into a contract to participate. Officers will meet regularly with clients to maintain the equipment and update information. Distribution of equipment for the Project Lifesaver program will be on a first come, first served basis as there is a limited amount of equipment available for use. A waiting list will be created if needed.
