Golden Ring - Barrack R

Commander's Message 

Welcome to the Golden Ring Barrack’s webpage.  We hope you find this site both helpful and informative.  The troopers and civilian personnel assigned to the Golden Ring Barrack work diligently, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to serve the citizens of Baltimore County, the residents of the State of Maryland, and those traveling through our State, with integrity, fairness, and service.  While our barrack is primarily responsible for both criminal and traffic enforcement on all the interstate highways in Baltimore County (with the exception of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway), you can rest assured our troopers stand ready to assist anywhere in the State of Maryland.  I hope you take the time to navigate through our site and see first-hand how the personnel assigned to the Golden Ring Barrack stand ready to serve you and strive to be “Maryland’s Finest!”
