About Us

The Police Accountability Task Force of Howard County (PATF-HoCo) is a group of like-minded community activists who are all long-term residents of the county. We organized in the summer of 2020, following the murder of George Floyd, to take action within Howard County to address issues and concerns around racial inequality/disparities in policing.

PATF-HoCo members are Jacqueline Akinpelu, Mark Booker, Bill Cozzo, Jim Gormley, Angie Page, and Ted Stewart. 

PATF-HoCo is excited to be working with many significant community organizations that share our objectives. These partner groups represent a wide cross-section of Howard County citizens focused on advancing police accountability and transparency.  Our Coalition Partners are:
