NOTTINGHAM, MD—The Baltimore County Police Department has announced that it will be participating in the first annual Faith and Blue weekend, to be held October 9-12. This event is supported by most major national law enforcement groups and has been embraced by religious communities nationwide.

Chief Melissa R. Hyatt has invited Baltimore County faith-based organizations to participate in this event, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

“COVID-19 has made community engagement challenging. This weekend provides an opportunity to re-establish and build relationships, communicate, collaborate and break down barriers,” said Chief Hyatt.

Faith and Blue is based on the premise that strong communities are built on mutual respect and understanding. Neighborhoods thrive when faith-based organizations and law enforcement work together to make communities safer and stronger.

The following is a list of events that are scheduled throughout the Nottingham area. These events are also posted on the Faith and Blue website under the Events tab.
