Baltimore County Police and Fire Recruitmentby Kevin Kamenetz
County Executive

I am extremely proud of the men and women who choose to serve the people of Baltimore County in our police and fire departments. Without a doubt, they are among the finest in the nation. I am pleased to announce that Baltimore County is releasing a new recruitment video today that is designed to encourage minorities and females to pursue a career in public safety. 

As we move forward in the 21st century, we need to do all that we can to ensure that we continue to protect our communities. As the demographics of the nation and County continue to change, it is critical that the individuals serving in all areas of government, but particularly in public safety, reflect the communities they serve. It is not only morally right, it is good public policy. Over the past decade, we have made significant progress, but we can do more. Most importantly, public safety depends on the public’s confidence. A diverse police and fire department builds that trust and makes everyone safer.

This new recruiting tool will be shared with school guidance counselors, ministers, broadcast widely on BCTV, and utilized at both traditional and no-traditional job fairs. We can, and will attract, an increasingly diverse group of men and women to serve in Baltimore County, while maintaining the high standards that make us so proud.

If you know someone who would be an excellent candidate to serve in Baltimore County’s police and fire departments, please have them contact the Department of Human Resources directly or visit http://www.baltimorecountymd.gov. I hope you will enjoy and share Baltimore County’s latest recruiting tool:  http://www.youtube.com/baltimorecounty.
