The District V Civilian Advisory Council recognized Major David Morris’ 20 years of service with the Prince George’s County Police Department during their monthly meeting on Nov. 15 when they presented him with a cake and card thanking him for his work with the community.

‘‘I think it would be almost unanimous, if not unanimous, that [we think] he’s doing a great job,” North Clinton Civic Association President Clint Burnham said, noting that Morris works long hours to keep up his watch over the community. ‘‘We just felt it was important for people to say that you’re doing a great job and don’t get discouraged,” he said.
