The Baltimore Police Department displayed its new to the department program resource van during last month’s Baltimore Festival. The vehicle is a former medic that was retired by the Basil Joint Fire District. The village purchased it for $1. The van will primarily be used by the department’s school resource officer to help present programs on bicycle safety, drug awareness and stranger danger. Subway of Baltimore paid for the new paint job. Jim Cruse Neon provided all the striping. The George Taylor Family bought the radio and emergency lights. Thanks to the Taylor Family, Vallery Ford of Waverly donated about $4,000 worth of mechanical repairs. Beacon photo by Charles Prince.
