Towson Motorcade Set to Roll – Press Release

On National Night Out, August 4, 2015, a motorcade of Baltimore County policemen, firemen and volunteers from the Towson Area Citizens On Patrol (TACOP) will drive through Towson to showcase the community’s crime prevention programs. National Night Out is celebrated across the country on the first Tuesday of August. Highlights of Towson’s National Night Out include a rally and a police-escorted motorcade which will go through every one of Towson’s 25 COP neighborhoods. 

        Every year, National Night Out attracts hundreds of residents who turn on their lights, walk their neighborhood streets, interact with the police, cheer the motorcade and applaud TACOP’s community crime fighting efforts. Everyone attending the National Night Out rally is asked to bring 2-3 non-perishable items of food or travel size toiletries to donate to the Assistance Center of Towson Churches to help Towson’s needy. 

       The event will begin with a rally on August 4th at 5:30 PM. Towson residents, TACOP volunteers and representatives of the Police and Community Relations Council (PCRC), Providence Volunteer Fire Company and the Baltimore County Police will gather for the rally at Towson Marketplace, in front of TOYS R US and Michael’s on Putty Hill Avenue.  At the conclusion of the rally, the police-escorted motorcade will lead the Fire and Police Vehicle Parade.

        TACOP volunteers patrol the streets of Towson neighborhoods to keep residents, businesses and students safe.  Working in partnership with the Baltimore County Police, they monitor crime activity in Towson neighborhoods and immediately call 911 to report suspected criminal activity they observe while on patrol.  TACOP is a 501c3 organization founded in 2000 to help Towson Area neighborhoods start COP programs and is solely supported by donations.

Attendees are urged to bring their own chairs. In the event of rain, the location of the Rally will be held at the Trinity Episcopal Church located at 120 Allegheny Avenue.

       Highlights of the 15th Rally Against Crime ceremony include a Boy Scouts of America Color Guard and the singing of the national anthem, brief remarks by Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Police Chief James Johnson and awards recognizing TACOP unsung heroes for their significant contributions to make Towson a safer place.
