The Baltimore County Police Department in cooperation with the Baltimore County Public School system will participate in a training exercise simulating an active shooter critical incident. The exercise will begin on Friday, June 22 at 8 a.m. and finish around 2 p.m. The exercise will be held inside of Prettyboy Elementary School located at 19810 Middletown Road in Freeland 21053.

Avoid School Property

The public is being made aware that there will be an increased police presence on the school’s grounds and in the immediate area, and is being asked to avoid the school property during the training exercise so as to not interfere with the activities.

The exercise will simulate a realistic response to an active shooter critical incident. Actors will be playing roles as parents, staff, students, and assailants. Officers will provide a mock response while working to mitigate the threat and secure the area.
