Police to sponsor sleep-over in Patterson Park

September 27, 1997

The Baltimore Police Department is sponsoring a sleep-over in Patterson Park tonight for neighborhood residents and their children to send a "very strong message" that the park "is safe."

About 60 community residents and their children are expected to spend the night in the park. The event starts at 6 p.m. and will include entertainment. It ends at 9 a.m. tomorrow with breakfast from Robin Lee Caterers.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to partner JTC with the Police Department in the spirit of commitment," said Maj. Timothy Longo, commander of the Southeastern District. "Most importantly, it sends a very strong message to the community that Patterson Park is safe."

The camp-out is sponsored by the Southeastern District Police Community Relations Council and the Patterson Park Neighborhood Initiative. Information: Sgt. William Rowland at 410-633-2604 or the Public Affairs Office at 410-396-2012.
