Jack Baker - SDPCRC & Citizens on Patrol

What is SDPCRC?

SDPCRC is the Southern District Police Community Relations Council.  SDPCRC meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month and are open to the public.  All Southern District community members are welcome.  The meetings are fun and interesting.  They start with food – either a potluck (everybody contributes) or a meal sponsored by a neighborhood association (FHSNA is the May meeting sponsor).  The Police Explorers Unit (teenagers) lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance; we hear who the Officer of the Month is and congratulate the officer when he/she receives the award; and get the latest crime statistics from Acting Major Dombroski and the gun arrests from Lieutenant Nalewajko.

We have speakers from various organizations, including the Mayor’s Office and the offices of the Council President or other City Council members (see the accompanying article in this newsletter about Commissioner Batts’s visit to the March SDPCRC meeting).  We also open up the meeting so attendees can talk about upcoming events in their neighborhood or raise concerns they have.  These meetings are a great opportunity to hear what’s going on in the Southern District and listen to our neighbors from other Southern District communities, like Morrell Park, Pigtown, Cherry Hill, Brooklyn, and Curtis Bay.

SDPCRC meetings are held at the Southern District Police Station, 10 Cherry Hill Road, Baltimore, 21225.  You can park in the lot across the street from the PD.  Dinner starts between 6:30 and 7:00, and the meeting starts at 7:00.  Come and join us!

The next SDPCRC meeting is Thursday, March 20th.
