The Baltimore County Police is assisting Maryland State Police Glen Burnie Barrack in attempting to identify the suspect pictured below. On March 23 this suspect used a fraudulent credit card at multiple businesses in the Martin Plaza Shopping Center in Middle River. He was seen leaving the area in a silver Chevrolet Equinox.

BGE’s Emergency Response and Safety Grant Program has awarded the Baltimore County Police Foundation a $3,000 grant to protect police officers in the field.

Police Foundation President Stephen Somers and Baltimore County Police Colonel Alexander Jones accepted the award on January 31 at a ceremony in Howard County.

The grant will be used to purchase equipment to protect our officers while on patrol and when responding to emergency community situations. Protecting the public is the chief mission of police. Our officers need to be safe to fulfill their mission.

Over the years, BGE grants to the Police Foundation have made it possible for the department to keep up with ever-changing technology and communications.

In 2013, a BGE grant was used to purchase and install a broadband satellite system for the Department’s Mobile Unified Command Vehicle. With the help of this grant, communication is possible when land-based cell and tower systems fail or become overwhelmed.
