New Baltimore County initiative promotes public safety-focused careers
Jan 30, 2022CCBC is part of a new joint initiative designed to build pathways for public-safety-focused careers in Baltimore County, and to help ensure the next generation of law enforcement reflects the diversity of communities and are trained in 21st-century policing skills and values.
The Community Policing Partnership brings together CCBC, the Baltimore County Police Department, the Baltimore County Police Academy, Baltimore County Public Schools, and the Office of the County Executive.
“Baltimore County is committed to ensuring the next generation of law enforcement reflects the rich diversity of our communities and is provided with innovative and inclusive training to help prepare them to address the needs of our neighborhoods,” said Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski.
As an educational partner in this effort, CCBC is expanding new electives to provide opportunities for students enrolled in the college’s Criminal Justice program, including courses on community policing, civil rights, restorative justice, interpersonal communication, and mental health.
