Did you know that there is a “Police & Community Relations Council” (aka: PCRC) in your area?  Most people are not aware until a concern sneaks around the corner and comes into their community.

There are 10 precincts in Baltimore County and each precinct currently has an active PCRC made up of community groups, businesses and concerned citizens.  The PCRC acts as a support group for the Precinct and their personnel.  The PCRC assist the Baltimore County Police Department in the education of citizens in how to reduce and prevent crime; and acts as a liaison between the Baltimore County Police Department and the community.

Council meetings are held monthly within nearly every Precinct command in Baltimore County.  The council members meet with the Precinct Commander and other attending police personnel.  These meetings are an excellent way to resolve issues that exist between the community and police department.  They provide an open forum where citizens may bring attention to problems within their neighborhood and allow them to be addressed with the appropriate joint police and community response.  These meetings also provide a line of communications where the police department can inform the community of departmental programs and enlist community help in crime prevention projects.

Members of the councils regularly recognize individual officers within their precincts through various yearly and monthly awards.  Some police councils have fund-raisers to purchase and provide needed equipment and supplies for their precincts.

Our goal is to make Baltimore County a safer place to live through mutual understanding of police and citizen concerns.  We provide a structured forum where law enforcement official and citizens can come together to discuss concerns in their neighborhoods.

The Police Community Relations Councils are constantly recruiting and always welcome new members.  We encourage our police officers to utilize their council as an important resource to members of the community who may be interested in:
