BCoPD, Maryland State Police to celebrate National Faith & Blue Weekend with local communities



BALTIMORE, MD—The Baltimore County Police Department and Maryland State Police will join faith-based organizations to celebrate National Faith & Blue Weekend, which is set for October 6-9, 2023.

National Faith & Blue Weekend is a collaborative initiative that builds bridges and breaks down biases through activities and outreach amongst law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve. Faith & Blue was launched to facilitate safer, stronger, more just and unified communities by directly enabling local partnerships among law enforcement professionals, residents, businesses and community groups through the connections of local faith-based organizations.

The weekend is based on the premise that strong communities are built on mutual respect, trust and understanding.
