The Baltimore Guardian Angels, Baltimore Police department and Actor/Comedian Guy Richards form Partnership to Raise Awareness and Fight Stigma Associated with Mental Illness.

Baltimore City’s “Top Cop,” Commissioner Kevin Davis, announced at a Press Conference on August 31, 2016, that the Baltimore Police Department, Guardian Angels and Actor/Comedian Guy Richards are teaming up to educate others and raise awareness on the effects of Mental Illness. Commissioner Davis spoke of his intention to host a Seminar for Officers of the Baltimore Police Department about Mental Illness in the hopes that through the Education of Officers, and Others, we can change the way Mental Illness is viewed and handled within the Department as well as by the Public at Large.

During the Press Conference, held at Police Headquarters, Actor/Comedian, Guy Richards, disclosed for the first time publicly, that he has an Axis I diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, for which he has been receiving treatment since 2002. He described how it affected his life and interactions with others and he thanked those closest to him, without whose help, he admitted, he would not be here today.

This partnership follows what Commissioner Davis called the “Scathing Criticisms of (their) Agency and Arguably (their) Profession,” referring, of course, to the Published Findings of the Department of Justice Investigation of the Baltimore Police Department. Additionally, the Announcement precedes the BPD’s announcement of a New Director of the Baltimore Police Training Academy, whom Commissioner Davis stated had a background in de-escalation techniques.

     Guardian Angels use blue tape to show support for cops

Story By: Esteban Parra, The News Journal 8:02 p.m. EDT August 6, 2016

Project Blue TapeThe Wilmington Guardian Angels Chapter is showing their support for law enforcement officers by using a simple roll of blue tape.

The group also hopes that the Project Blue Tape, which adheres strips of painter's tape to vehicles or clothing in a show of support for police, helps start a healing movement in Wilmington between residents and police.

"The Guardian Angels decided that we wanted to take an event that could bring peace throughout the city,"  said Marcos "Punisher" Velez, Wilmington Guardian Angels chapter commander.

Velez said he got the idea after learning about a man in Maple Valley, Washington, who decided that he wanted to show his appreciation for law enforcement by sticking a strip of blue tape across the back of his Dodge truck. Andy Audette shared the idea on his Facebook page, and the idea spread, prompting others to add blue tape to their vehicles.

Wilmington Guardian Angels Chapter Commander MarcosThere's even a Facebook Project Blue Stripe page, where people can show their support for law enforcement.

Now Velez said he wants to duplicate the movement in the area and hopes that by seeing the support there is more trust between police and the community.

"Project Blue Tape lets people know that not all cops are bad and not everybody in the community is bad," he said. "We want to bring some type of peace between the community and the police. And bring some trust."

On Saturday he held an event on the edge of Wilmington's Hedgeville neighborhood, where he and others stuck blue tape on vehicles and held a party to celebrate the occasion.

Rev. Sandra Ben, who created Safe United Neighborhoods, or S.U.N., attended the event. She said it's important because it shows that people care about what's going on in their communities.

"People have to see that there are people who care," she said. "Not everybody is out for violence. Not everybody is out to fight.

"We're just all trying to come together and show people that we can be friendly and have a good time. And violence is not the way to handle things."
