From Butch Tilley, President of the Harford Sheriff Foundation: I wanted to share my sincere thanks to the Rite Aid Foundation for their generous $10,000 donation. The Harford Sheriff Foundation was established in 2012 as a private, business-sponsored, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of police service in the County. The goal is to strengthen the relationship between police, citizens and the business community. These funds will be utilized to assist the Foundation’s mission to support the men and women of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office with training and other necessities that are not funded through the public sector. We are fortunate to be part of such and amazing and resilient community. Tragedy has been at our doorstep, but will never break us. #HarfordStrong

It's a special Halloween edition of Traffic Tip Tuesday! From Sgt. Mike Lane: Welcome to Traffic Tip Tuesday. With Halloween upon us I want to remind you to please drive safely. As all of you know, there will be many creatures and characters out trick-or-treating and, knowing this, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DRIVE DEFENSIVELY! Slow down in the neighborhoods and PAY ATTENTION. You should always be aware AND EXPECT kids to be crossing streets and darting down roadways. The kids are excited and often times they don’t think before running off to the next house. Parents should talk to their kids prior to them going out. Explain the dangers of walking in the road and to utilize sidewalks wherever possible. Provide a flashlight and wear something reflective. Those parents that walk with their kids, pay attention to what your kids are doing and be aware of your surroundings. If at all possible, do not cross streets between parked vehicles. I hope everyone has a fun, safe Halloween! Stay safe; slow down, wear your seat belt, put the phone down and drive sober!

An important message involving the safety of our students from Sgt. Lane for this week's #TrafficTipTuesday! We have a helpful graphic attached as well to show you when you need to stop for a school bus. "I was a little long winded last week so I'll be brief today. This week has been designated as School Bus Safety Week. My office receives numerous complaints each week involving school bus runners. If a school bus has its alternating flashing red lights operational, you have to stop unless there is a median dividing the travel lanes. If the road is 6 lanes wide and does not have a barrier dividing the travel lanes you have to stop. If you are traveling during the times that school buses are conducting their school runs, slow down and pay attention! Stay safe; slow down, wear your seat belt, put the phone down and drive sober!"
