This event has been canceled due to weather concerns. Another Community Outreach event will be scheduled for March 2016.

Community Outreach officers from the Wilkens Precinct invite children in elementary and middle school to ride with them on Saturday, October 3. Children and parents should arrive at Catonsville Elementary School, 2301 Edmondson Avenue between 8:30 and 9 a.m. There is no registration and the event is free.

The fun begins at 9 a.m. when riders will bike along Edmondson Avenue towards the Trolley Trail. Bikers will continue on the trail to the end at Frederick Road before turning around and returning to Catonsville Middle School.

During the ride, there will be a short break at the intersection of the Trolley Trail and Oella Road. There will be a second break at the end of the trail at Frederick Road.

McGruff the Crime Dog will be on hand to greet everyone before the ride begins. And don't forget your helmet!

Please join the Baltimore County Police Department (BCoPD) for its first "tweet-along" in Towson this Tuesday, November 12, from 7 to 10 p.m.

A tweet-along is a virtual ride-along that allows citizens to follow a BCoPD officer on patrol through our Twitter account, @BACOPoliceFire. Tweet-alongs are increasingly popular with law enforcement agencies as a way to heighten community awareness of how police officers work and the kinds of calls they deal with, day in and day out.

For Tuesday's tweet-along, Corporal Cathleen Batton will ride with Officer Daniel Jonas of Precinct 6/Towson as he patrols the area around Towson University and downtown Towson. Corporal Batton will constantly update BCoPD's Twitter account with what she and Officer Jonas see and do.

Visit our Twitter account,, #tweetalong to follow Corporal Batton and Officer Jonas Tuesday night. Updates from the Tweet-along also will appear on our Facebook page.
