On October 27, The North Baltimore Police Department recoginzed two local organizations for their support of the National Child Safety Program.
NBPD has been a supporter of the national Child Safety Council for 20 years. During that time NBPD has raised money to support the program. The monies that have been raised provide literature and programs that the police department presents at the schools every year. The programs educate children on topics varying from Stranger Danger, to Internet Safety and Bullying.
It is through the generous donations from local organizations and businesses in the North Baltimore Area that allow this program to continue so successfully.
This year NBPD rcognized the American Legion Post 539 and the Fraternal Order of Eagles 2633 for their most generous donations.
"Organizations such as these are the un-sung heroes of North Batlimore, they don't do it for accolades, they do it because they support our children" said Chief Allan Baer.
"We presented a plaque, as a small token of our appreciation" said Chief Baer "we could not be more proud of them".
Chief Baer stated that he hopes to recognize more organizations and businesses each year.
