Baltimore County Police Join Local Faith Communities For Nationwide Weekend Event
BALTIMORE COUNTY - The Baltimore County Police Department will participate in a series of community events from October 6-9 as part of the fourth annual National Faith and Blue Weekend.

The primary objective is to foster feelings of security and inclusiveness across Baltimore County.

- An engagement at St. Agnes School on October 9, where Baltimore County community officers will emphasize the importance of school safety and participate in a pinning ceremony for school safety patrol members.
