Three hundred Pennsylvania state troopers will head to Baltimore to help in the wake of riots there.
Trooper Adam Reed, state police spokesman, said personnel from 15 troops will leave today or Friday.
“It’s important to help our neighbors out with any assistance they may need,” Reed said. “I am sure Maryland would do the same for us if anything like this happened in Pennsylvania.
“We will be available for anything that will happen.”
The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency also will deploy its Emergency Management Compact Team, which is trained to provide help in emergencies.
Gov. Tom Wolf said Maryland accepted Pennsylvania’s offer to provide the services.
“Our troopers and emergency personnel are sources of pride for our commonwealth,” Wolf said. “Our thoughts will be with them and their families as they help our neighbors in Baltimore during this difficult time. We hope that with their assistance, calm will prevail and the Baltimore community can begin to move forward.”
