The Baltimore County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4 has developed a Community Reference Guide. There are many national areas of interest that have garnered attention due to recent events. We have gathered information to communicate the facts to members of the community in a professional easy to read reference guide. These will be posted weekly for the next several weeks and disseminated on social media.
Part 1 is the Introduction and Overview of the Baltimore County Police Department. This issue will communicate the demographics of the agency, calls for service, arrests, uses of force, assaults on officers and citizen complaints.
Part 2 speaks to the Education and Training requirements needed to be hired as a Baltimore County Police Officer. The training required in the academy and the yearly continuing education and training requirements to maintain certification by the Maryland Police Training Standards Commission.
Part 3 is a document that talks about the Maryland Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill of Rights (LEOBR). It explains the purpose for the creation of the bill and guides you through the different sections of the LEOBR. It will show the bills limitations and give facts to dispel the misinformation that has been spoken about in different media, social media and political formats.
