Public safety is the top concern I hear during my visits to neighborhood associations and in conversations with those who live and work in Towson. Recent incidents are frightening and should concern all of Towson’s leaders.

Fortunately, Baltimore County has a top-notch Police Department that has made arrests in some of the most serious crimes. I would like to thank Chief of Police Jim Johnson, Towson precinct Captain Richard Howard, and all of our police officers who serve with them. The additional police resources pledged by County Executive Kamenetz will certainly help as we move forward.
