Ongoing PCRC07 Program Supplies Heavy Duty First Aid Kits to the Baltimore County Police K-9 Unit
Precinct 7 (Cockeysville) Police & Community Relations Council (PCRC07) ...has an ongoing Program to supply heavy duty First Aid Kits to the Baltimore County Police K-9 Unit. Each of the 26 K9 Handlers has received a Heavy Duty K-9 First Aid Kit which remains in their Police Vehicle. One kit is supplied to each handler no matter how many K-9 Officers they handle and train. If ever used, supplies are replenished by the PCRC07.
The PCRC 07 members feel it is important that the K-9 Handlers from all precincts have the necessary equipment to provide immediate first aid to K-9 Officers when needed in serious situations away from help. A fundraising campaign was completed to obtain donations for the purchase of the required 26 heavy duty first aid kits. Donations were received from veterinarians, businesses, service organizations and members. A generous grant from St. Joseph Parish in Cockeysville was obtained to augment campaign funding. Working with Sgt. Fruhling of the Baltimore County Police K9 Unit, it was determined which first aid kit would best meet the needs of the K-9 Unit. The first aid kits were obtained and additional expendable supplies were added by PCRC 07.
Cockeysville Precinct 7 PCRC would like to thank the K-9 handlers in all precincts for the service, training and care they provide to their K-9 partners and to our communities.
More information can be obtained by contacting the Project Leaders, Maria and Norm Zickuhr, at 410-666-4254 or from the Cockeysville Precinct 7 Outreach Officer at 410-887-1863.
The goal of the Cockeysville Precinct 7- Police & Community Relations Council is to foster cooperation and communication with the Baltimore County Police in order to identify and resolve problems that may arise in our community. The Police & Community Relations Council for Precinct 7 meets monthly at 7:00 PM on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Cockeysville Library. Precinct 7 is from the Towson line to the Pennsylvania line and from Falls Road to the Harford line. All residents are welcome to attend our meetings. See the Website and PCRC07 Facebook Page for details.

*** PCRC 07 - MISSION STATEMENT...
~ Our Mission is to forge better communications, awareness, understanding and respect of the Citizens in our area and the Police who serve our needs. This enables us to assist the Baltimore County Police Department at educating our citizens and businesses about crime awareness and prevention methods suitable to our area and the Law and Order they are required to enforce and maintain.
~ By establishing this relationship we realize and provide the additional tools, services and cooperation the Police need in order to improve the safety and quality of our lives, making it safer for them to do so.
*** OUR ONLY FUNDING SOURCE IS YOU!!
~ Dear Member:
P.C.R.C. is a no-frills charitable organization, with no paid staff, no luxurious offices, no fancy dinners, and no boondoggles. Every dollar you contribute is spent to support the efforts of the Law Enforcement Officers here in our local community. How does the Cockeysville PCRC do this? Here are just a few of the ways:
Underwriting the costs of specialized training on dealing with domestic violence, the impact of drugs in the community, gang violence, hostage incidents and terrorist threats.
Purchasing badly needed equipment, things like bicycles for community patrols and laser beacons for the K-9 Unit.
Providing Thanksgiving and Christmas meals at the Precinct for the Officers who are at work, away from their families, on these Holidays.
Sponsoring an Annual Officer Appreciation Day to recognize the Precinct's men & women, their spouses, and children for their sacrifices they make for us every day of the year.
Honoring an Officer-of-the-Year, selected by the Precinct Commander, and the PCRC Board, with an engraved plaque.
We also organize and hold monthly Meetings at which the Precinct Commander and his colleagues come together to inform all members of the Community, all of whom are welcome to attend, to discuss Crime Trends, learn about Police activities, share Community and Police concerns, hear Crime Prevention tips, and improve communication.
In the meantime, please make your tax-deductible charitable contribution of $10, $25, $50 -- however much or little you can afford -- to your local Precinct PCRC today. Also, consider a request of a $100 contribution from your Homeowner's Association.
The local Precinct PCRC exists to enhance and recognize the work of the dedicated men and women at the Local Precinct, as well as to further Police=Community communication and understanding. We need your assistance, will put whatever you donate to good use, and will greatly appreciate your charitable gift in support of our local Police Precinct.
Thank You in advance for your Support,
Local PCRC Director
*** What is a "Police & Community Relations Council"?
~ There are 9 Precincts in Baltimore County and each Precinct currently has an active PCRC made up of community groups, businesses and concerned citizens. The Cockeysville PCRC acts as a support group for Precinct 07 and their personnel. The PCRC assist the Baltimore County Police Department in the education of citizens in how to reduce and prevent crime; and acts as a liaison between the Baltimore County Police Department and the Community.
~ We know that everyone leads busy lives -- it is about one and a half hours of your time once a month! In one and a half hours you should gain valuable information concerning crime & crime trends in your neighborhoods and learn the resources available to assist you directly from the Precinct Commander, an Officer from the Community Outreach Unit and sometimes a guest speaker from the Baltimore County Police Department or a related agency.
~ Council Meetings are held monthly within nearly every Precinct Command in Baltimore County. The Council members meet with the Precinct Commander and other attending Police personnel. These meetings are an excellent way to resolve issues that exist between the Community and the Police Department. They provide an open forum where citizens may bring attention to problems within their neighborhood and allow them to be addressed with the appropriate joint Police and Community response. These meetings also provide a line of communications where the Police Department can inform the Community of departmental programs and enlist community help in crime prevention projects.
~ Members of the Councils regularly recognize individual Officers within their Precincts through various yearly and monthly awards. Some Police Councils have fund-raisers to purchase and provide needed equipment and supplies for their Precincts.
~ Our goal is to make the Precinct & Community a safer place to live through mutual understanding of Police and Citizen concerns. We provide a structured forum where Law Enforcement officials and citizens can come together to discuss concerns in their neighborhoods.
~ The Police Community Relations Councils are constantly recruiting and always welcome new members. We encourage our Police Officers to utilize their Council as an important resource to members of the community who may be interested in:
Learning about the Police Department
Bringing Community problems to the attention of the Department
Participating in Crime Prevention activities
~ Participate in Community and Crime Prevention Programs with your Police Department to create a safer and more secure community. We invite you to join us when you can.
