The Baltimore County Police and Fire departments will be conducting a functional training exercise on Monday, September 30. The exercise will take place at Towson High School located at 69 Cedar Avenue, off of York Road in Towson, 21286. Baltimore County Public Schools will be closed on the day of the exercise.

The public should be aware of the increased presence of emergency response vehicles and personnel at this location beginning as early as 6:30 a.m. and ending by 3:30 p.m. Roads in the area will not be closed; however, the public is asked to avoid the school grounds during these hours so as to not interfere with the activities. This exercise will be held rain or shine.

The exercise will include simulated active shooter and mass casualty incidents inside the facility. It will allow first responders to test safety and operation tactics, as well as assess and evaluate facility response plans.

No live weapons will be used during this training.

Original release (June 14, 2016  2:32 p.m.):

Two Towson Precinct School Resource Officers have been named as School Resource Officers of the Year. Officer Gregory Suber, the School Resource Officer at Loch Raven Academy, and Officer Timothy Fiedler the School Resource Officer at Towson High School, were given the awards at ceremonies at their schools.

Captain Jay Landsman, Commander of the Towson Precinct, stated: 

As the Commander of the Towson Precinct, I am honored to have these outstanding officers working in our schools. The role of School Resource Officer is so important to public safety and community engagement. Officer Suber and Officer Fiedler embrace their unique role as police officers and as role models for young students. In some cases, their positive influence may be the key to diverting a child away from negative influences that rob us of so much young talent every year. Thank you to Officer Suber and Officer Fiedler for their dedicated service. They are true law enforcement professionals and inspirational figures in our community.

Baltimore County currently has School Resources Officers assigned to every middle school and high school in Baltimore County.
