Baltimore County Police SHIELD Program

The Baltimore County Police SHIELD program is designed to establish partnerships between the Baltimore County Police Department and private sector and infrastructure security managers and professionals, as well as educational and faith-based communities. These partnerships are fostered through intelligence sharing, threat briefings and training opportunities through an email notification system.

The SHIELD program was designed to embrace a diverse audience such as security directors, safety managers, community leaders, business executives, business owners, educators, faith-based communities and others who have the responsibility of ensuring the safety of the personnel in their respective businesses or organizations. The key to a successful program as well as safeguarding our communities is to foster a mutual flow of information.


This program shares homeland security open source intelligence, active shooter prevention information and training opportunities with our stakeholders. These resources are available to all businesses, non-profits, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), public and private educational institutions, faith-based communities, and critical infrastructure facilities throughout Baltimore County.

The SHIELD program is operated by the Baltimore County Police Homeland Security and Criminal Intelligence Section.
