Maryland State Police Joins Agencies In Campaign To Protect First Responders

May 9, 2022

The Maryland State Police is joining agencies across the country in a national campaign aimed at keeping first responders safe. The initiative is meant to raise awareness about the “move over” law. This comes as an expansion to the state’s law, which will soon be in place this fall. “With people flying by at 55, 60, 70,80 miles an hour—not ideal circumstances for anybody, let alone first responders,” Maryland State Police spokesperson Ron Snyder said. Every day, thousands of law enforcement officers and first responders put their lives at risk as they take to the streets to help keep their communities safe, Snyder said.
