The Baltimore County Police Department's cable TV program has changed its name to On the Beat. The next edition runs through January 2019.

The opening segment focuses on the Baltimore County Crisis Intervention Team and how the program assists police officers in successfully addressing  citizens who suffer from mental illness. Ms. Victoria Hershfeld and Ms. Kimberlye Ullman, of the Baltimore County Crisis Intervention Team, discuss alternate methods that Baltimore County uses to peacefully deal with individuals in crisis.

The topic in the second segment is our K9 Unit. Lieutenant Joseph Peach provides an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look into the Baltimore County Police Department’s K9 Unit and the training that officers and their K-9 partners go through to become a certified police K9 Team.
