The Baltimore County Fire and Police Departments are separating their social media accounts.


BCoFD and BCoPD will no longer use the Twitter handle @BACOPoliceFire.  Effective immediately, the accounts have separated.

To receive news, updates and information related to fire and rescue incidents, please follow @BaltCoFire. To receive news, updates and information related to police incidents, please follow @BaltCoPolice.

Updates and alerts for the Baltimore County Office of Emergency Management will be posted to the existing account, but the handle has been updated to @BaltCoEmergency for formatting consistency.  Twitter users do not need to make any changes relative to this account. Please continue to follow for information about weather and community emergencies and for preparedness information.


BCoPD has moved to a new Facebook account. "Like" @BaltCoPolice on Facebook.

The existing "Official Baltimore County Police & Fire" (@BaltimoreCountyPoliceandFire) Facebook account will be rebranded for Fire only, @BaltimoreCountyFire. Please continue to follow this page for Fire & Emergency Management news.

We thank our followers for their patience as we try to provide accurate and helpful public safety information.
