MISSION STATEMENT

 Operation P.U.L.S.E. (People United to Live in a Safe Environment) is a crime prevention program designed to have a positive impact in removing crime and violence from the East Baltimore community. In partnership with the Johns Hopkins Medical Institution Corporate Security, Operation P.U.L.S.E. trains volunteers with an extensive Crime Prevention Course in Operation Identification, Conflict Management, Public Relations, Courtroom Training, Citizens on Patrol and most important, Evangelism. We are a part of the church and spread the Word whenever and wherever we go. Once the security training is completed, P.U.L.S.E.  Volunteers take to the streets working with churches, the Baltimore City Police Department, schools, neighborhoods, community groups/leaders and other city agencies to set up security ministries.

ABOUT US

One of the highlights of participating in the community is the reward of giving back to the community. Operation P.U.L.S.E. has sponsored several annual Father and Son Breakfasts with local schools in the community. This event gave an opportunity for fathers to bond with their sons in a positive environment. Several men from different walks life and professional backgrounds were on hand at the request of P.U.L.S.E. to serve as role models and mentors to the

students without a male figure present.
