News from the Captain

Residents are reminded to lock their vehicles and remove items like cell phones, GPS units, and wallets when the car is parked and left unoccupied. With the warmer weather, we see an increase in cars being broken into because they were unlocked. Follow these crime prevention tips and don't give anyone the opportunity to make you a victim.

Citizens are also invited to attend and join the Wilkens Police Community Relations Organization (WPCRO). The meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria of the Maiden Choice School located at 4901 Shelbourne Road in Arbutus, 21227. Join the precinct commanders at the meeting and discuss what's happening in your community.


Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct's Community Outreach Team. Officers will then check on your location for any unusual activity while you are away. If something suspicious does happen at your home, law enforcement will be able to quickly reach you or a local emergency contact from the information provided on the form.
