Multicultural Relations Program

Through proactive outreach, this unit of the Police Department will establish and keep contact with key members and organizations from the cultural groups that are components of the diverse population of Baltimore County. This will promote a positive working relationship that will develop mutual understanding, cooperation and respect.  

Multicultural Relations Program Goals

  • Identify the various minority groups that reside in Baltimore County.
  • Build relationships between civic groups, businesses, faith-based organizations and influential members of the multicultural population in order to improve the quality of life.
  • Respond to incidents of a critical or emergency nature by the Communications Liaison or 911 Center, or any supervisor.
  • Assist patrol and Criminal Investigations Division Specialized Unit detectives with investigations and any other request associated with accomplishing their task at hand.
  • Assist in the training of officers with instruction aimed at eliminating cultural barriers. 
  • Provide training in the form of presentations to the diverse cultural groups of Baltimore County.
  • Coordinate between crime victims, witnesses, the courts, service providers and other government agencies.
  • Construct and maintain positive relationships between members of the diverse multicultural population and our agency.
  • Eliminate fear of the police so that persons will report crime and also provide witness information, thus reducing crime and victimization.
  • Motivate and recruit members of the multicultural population as volunteers to assist and instruct members of the diverse population who may have become victims of crime or need assistance with any other police or social matter. 
  • Demonstrate a positive attitude and actively seek qualified candidates from the diverse population to become police officers with the Police Department.
