The Baltimore County Police Department is now accepting applications for its Community Crime Prevention and Youth Activity Grants Program for fiscal year 2016 (July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016).

  • Community Crime Prevention grants are available for county Citizens On Patrol groups and other programs aimed at reducing crime.
  • Youth Activity grants are available for programs that provide ongoing, sustained efforts that focus on early intervention and long-term behavior modification of at-risk youth.

Only non-profit groups, community organizations and individuals that operate, or reside in Baltimore County are eligible to receive funding. An application packet that outlines program rules and requirements may be obtained by calling Mr. Sebastian Zito of the Police Department's Grants Management Team at 410-887-5637.

Completed applications must be received no later than 3 p.m. on Friday, December 12.

Baltimore County first responders have received a financial boost from Baltimore Gas and Electric Company through a grant given to the Baltimore County Police Foundation.

The BGE Grant of $10,000, available through the BGE 2013 Emergency Responder Safety Grant Program, provides a broadband satellite system for the Baltimore County Police Department’s Mobile Unified Command Vehicle – a mobile command post for the County’s emergency operation’s team.

The broadband satellite system makes it possible for the Baltimore County Police Department’s Mobile Unified Command Vehicle to keep in touch with officers and other responders during natural and manmade disasters. History has shown that land-based systems can fail during emergencies when communication between agencies and the public is vital. It is not uncommon for cell and radio towers to go down when hit by a storm. When an emergency strikes, mobile and land-based phone communication networks can be overwhelmed and prove useless.

No Land Lines Needed

The new dedicated bandwidth system satellite does not depend upon terrestrial communications systems to keep communications flowing. Housed within the vehicle, the system provides resiliency and redundancy, ensuring that first responders can communicate during emergencies.

Uninterrupted communication is vital during emergencies. This satellite system provides safety for those who work and live in the County.

Ready To Go

The system was installed in the Baltimore County Police Department’s Command Vehicle in May and is fully functional.

The $17,500 cost of the system is shared by BGE, $10,000, and Baltimore County, $7,500.

The Baltimore County Police Department is providing information regarding its application for federal funding under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program: FY 2014 Local Solicitation. This message constitutes public notice of the application.

FY 2014 Local Solicitation

The Baltimore County Police Department is in the process of applying to the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Program's Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) for grant funding under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program: FY 2014 Local Solicitation. Baltimore County has been allocated $363,230 under a federal funding formula for state and local jurisdictions. The Police Department intends to use this allocation to continue to partially fund the salaries of six Police Officer positions and one Criminal Records Clerk position hired under a previous award.
