On August 5, 2014, Baltimore County Police and the Towson Area Citizens On Patrol (TACOP) will host National Night Out to spotlight crime prevention in Towson. Highlights of this annual event include a rally and a parade featuring a police escorted motorcade driving through Towson’s 25 COP neighborhoods. Every year, National Night Out attracts hundreds of residents who turn on their lights, walk their neighborhood streets, interact with the police, cheer the motorcade and applaud TACOP’s community crime fighting initiatives.
National Night Out is celebrated across the country on first Tuesday of August. This year’s event will begin with a rally on August 5th at 5:30 PM. Towson residents, TACOP volunteers and representatives of the Police and Community Relations Council (PCRC), Providence Volunteer Fire Company and the Baltimore County Police will gather for the rally at Towson Marketplace, in front of Michael’s on Putty Hill Road. At the conclusion of the rally, the police-escorted motorcade will lead the Fire and Police Vehicle Parade.
All National Night Out rally attendees are asked to bring 2-3 non-perishable items of food or travel size toiletries to the rally, which will be donated to the Assistance Center of Churches to help Towson residents in need.
TACOP volunteers patrol the streets of Towson neighborhoods to keep residents, businesses and students safe. Working in partnership with the Baltimore County Police, they monitor crime activity in Towson neighborhoods and immediately call 911 to report suspected criminal activity they observe while on patrol. TACOP is a 501c3 organization founded in 2000 to help Towson Area neighborhoods start COP programs and is solely supported by donations.
