Events and Programs

The UMB Police Force is involved in the community. Our officers and staff organize and participate in local and national events on campus and with our Baltimore City neighbors.

Local Events

Bike Rodeos

The UMB Police Force enjoys participating in “bike rodeos” at local elementary schools to demonstrate safe riding skills. We want children in our Baltimore communities to see police officers as teachers and safety advocates.

National Events

DEA National Take-Back Initiative

Let’s help keep drugs out of the hands of criminals and the reach of small children. Scheduled through the Drug Enforcement Administration, the UMB Police Force works with the School of Pharmacy to collect expired/unused prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs.

 

Polar Bear Plunge

Each year, our officers, along with officers from throughout the state, support the Maryland Special Olympics by participating in the Polar Bear Plunge by jumping into the frigid waters of the Chesapeake Bay.

 

Toys for Tots

Along with law enforcement agencies throughout the state, we visit neighborhoods and children in need to distribute toys.

Special Olympics

UMB Police Force officers volunteer as medal presenters to Special Olympians at the Maryland Special Olympics at Towson University.

National Night Out

During National Night Out, we encourage the University community and our Baltimore City neighbors to “take back the night” by coming to the SMC Campus Center to learn about safety awareness and crime prevention.

 

 

National Police Week

UMB Police Force Officers honor our fallen brothers and sisters during National Police Week at events held in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.
