The 2nd Annual Baltimore County Police Department Baseball Camp will start soon. Last year was a great success and we want to share that success with the young people in Baltimore County.

The week-long camp begins July 17 and ends on July 21. Each day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., underprivileged and at-risk youths from the southwestern part of the county will participate in this free program.

The program was founded in 2016 by Officer McElfish from Precinct 12/Dundalk. McElfish played in the minor leagues for the Cleveland Indians. Since that time, he has dedicated 23 years to the citizens of Baltimore County as an officer.

The idea behind the camp is to bridge the gap between police officers and the young people in the area. Seeing officers as people, not just uniforms, changes the perception many people have, especially our youth. Baseball is a natural.
