Happy New Year!
The opportunity of a life time is coming back around. Please keep your neighbors, friends, and family updated on the awesome work that Baltimore County Police Department does in the community. Our goal is to educate the Baltimore County citizens on the excellent training we receive, and the policies and procedures that Baltimore County Police follow while serving the community. Let’s encourage a healthy partnership and give the gift that keeps on giving – education.
The 38th Citizens’ Academy Program has been scheduled for the Spring of 2019. The Program consists of 16 sessions which includes 15 consecutive weekly evening classes (6:30-9:30 PM) and one Saturday class (9:00AM-3:00PM). The following dates and days of the week have been selected for the 38th Citizens’ Academy.

Nomination Forms will be accepted through February 15, 2019. Class size will be limited to a maximum of 50 attendees. The program will be conducted at the Public Safety Building in the England Dansicker Room this year, so the location is central for all Baltimore County citizens.

From Councilwoman Bevins:
Like you, I have been concerned about the incidents involving unsupervised youth that have occurred at White Marsh Mall over the past few months. In response to these incidents I have been in contact with mall leadership and I introduced a bi-partisan County Council Resolution requesting that that Brookfield Properties, the owner of the mall, implement a mandatory parental guidance policy more commonly known as a curfew, for minors after 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday evenings.
County Executive John Olszewski has also been working with White Marsh Mall leadership to develop a clear and specific policy on unsupervised youth, and I support the County Executive’s efforts. White Marsh Mall should be a place where both shoppers and employees have a positive experience. Whether it is a teenager working their first job or a family shopping, all should feel and be safe. Therefore I urge you, as members of the community to contact the General Manager of White Marsh Mall, Mary Williams, to express your concerns about the Mall and request that the mall implement a curfew policy for minors. It is time for White Marsh Mall to join with the Avenue and Towson Town Center to take seriously the issue of unsupervised minors.
Ms. Williams can be reached at mary.williams@brookfieldpropertiesretail.com, 717-487-2879, or 8200 Perry Hall Boulevard, Baltimore Maryland 21236. Whether you call, send an email, or a written letter it is important to let the mall leadership know your concerns.

From Councilwoman Bevins:
