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.
