                  TACOP Invites Towsonites to Crime Fighting Rally

       On June 20, Towson residents, students, elected officials and businesses will gather in downtown Towson for the annual Towson Area Citizens on Patrol’s (TACOP) Rally Against Crime. Every year, hundreds of Towsonites come to the Rally to show their support for TACOP’s efforts to fight crime and keep their community safe. The Rally Against Crime generates public awareness about the value of TACOP and sends the message that “Crime is Not Welcome in Towson”

     The Rally will be held on Friday, June 20, 6:00 to 6:30 PM on Allegheny Avenue between Washington Ave and the Roundabout. Towson’s popular Friday night “Feet on the Street” block party will follow. Families are encouraged to bring their children to the Rally to enjoy activities like climbing on a fire truck, sitting in a police car and getting inside of a race car. Captain Dee-Fense will put in a special appearance at the Rally again this year.

     Highlights of TACOP’s 14th Rally include a ceremony complete with a Boy Scouts of America Color Guard and the singing of the national anthem, brief remarks by Baltimore County Police Chief James Johnson and other dignitaries and awards recognizing TACOP unsung heroes for their significant contributions to make Towson a safer place. Honorees include Delegate Bill Frank, John Falconer and members of Rodgers Forge Next Door and Rodgers Forge Citizens on Patrol.
