The Baltimore County Police Department will partner with Towson University during Tigerfest, scheduled April 25-26. Baltimore County Police will assist with any neighborhood problems connected to Tigerfest.

Special enforcement patrols will be visible daily from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. in the Donnybrook, Knollwood, Towson Manor and Kenilworth Avenue communities. These patrols are assigned to address any problems caused by Tigerfest in residential neighborhoods.

Student and Resident Safety a Priority

Officers will patrol affected neighborhoods to address disorderly, violent, and illegal behavior such as:

  • Assaults
  • Loud noise or music
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Setting fires
  • Sexual assaults
  • Indecent exposure/urinating in public
  • Destruction of property
  • Alcohol violations, such as underage possession or open container violations
  • Possession of illegal drugs

Last year, six people were charged with civil or criminal offenses during the neighborhood patrols. Most of the charges involved alcohol-related offenses, such as underage possession of alcoholic beverages, possession of false identification, and open containers.

Baltimore County Police remind everyone to drink responsibly, make good choices regarding personal safety, and respect neighbors who are not participating in the festivities.

Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson has announced a number of new command assignments that take effect tomorrow, April 1.

  • Woodland M. Wilson III will be promoted from the rank of Captain to the rank of Major. Captain Wilson oversees BCoPD’s Operations Support Section, including K-9 and the Tactical Unit. As a Major, he will oversee Support Operations Division, including the Tactical Unit and K-9 as well as Aviation, the Hostage Negotiation Team, the Behavioral Assessment Unit, the Marine Team and Traffic.
  • Major Daniel Kaliszak will command BCoPD’s Technical Services Division. Major Kaliszak currently is assigned to Support Operations.
  • Captain Gordon Skinner, currently commander of Precinct 8/Parkville, will command the Vice/Narcotics Section.
  • Captain Jay Landsman Jr., currently assigned to the Vice/Narcotics Section, will command Precinct 6/Towson.
  • Captain Lisa Hannon, currently assigned to the Operations Bureau, will command Precinct 8/Parkville.
  • Captain Richard Howard, currently commander of Precinct 6/Towson, will be assigned to the Operations Bureau.

The changes follow the retirement last month of Major Karen Johnson.

At 6:02 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the Royal Farm store in the 600 block of Southwick Drive in Towson for a report of a vehicle that had gone through the front of the store.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that for unknown reasons, a Subaru Impreza drove through the front of the Royal Farm store, striking a 46-year-old female customer inside the business, pinning her against a counter.

The female was transported to St Joseph’s Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The 60-year-old female driver of the Subaru did not display any signs of impairment.

While the face of the store was severely damaged, the building structure was determined to be sound by Fire Department supervisors. Building inspectors were not requested to respond.

This incident is being investigated by Precinct 6 patrol personnel.
