As Chief of the Baltimore County Police Department, I welcome you to our website. Our online presence is a vital channel of communication between the Department and our communities.

I encourage you to bookmark our award-winning iWatch Public Safety News Blog. Every day, we post detailed news articles about significant crime, arrests, missing persons and accomplishments. Our website is mobile friendly.

Every week, we post news from each of our 10 precincts, including a crime blotter. All of us have an interest in police activity that does not make the nightly news but matters to us as homeowners, business people and neighbors.

Crime trends, verified by our Criminal Information and Analysis Division, are posted weekly. Technology plays an important role in our strategic approach to identifying and addressing crime trends. By carefully analyzing crime data, we are able to spot trends as they begin to develop and more precisely allocate resources to the communities that need them.

A variety of frequently sought services are available online, including:

I am proud of the work Baltimore County Police Department (BCoPD) does driving down crime, and of the relationship of trust we enjoy with our citizens. We know that this good relationship owes a great deal to transparency and customer service, and we hope that our website provides both.
