News from the Captain

Recently the Wilkens Precinct area has been experiencing a rise in vehicle thefts. Many of these thefts occur because the thieves find the vehicle’s keys inside the vehicle. Some of these vehicles are also left unlocked. A few simple steps can help protect your vehicle from being stolen:

  • Always keep your vehicle locked.
  • Never leave your vehicle running unattended.
  • Never leave your vehicle’s keys in the vehicle, even if they are hidden.

Citizens are reminded of other crime prevention tips to stay safe while the weather is warmer.

Essential to the police department’s ability to keep communities safe is the assistance of the public. Criminals count on not being noticed or seen by people who do not report their suspicious activities. Help make your community an uncomfortable place for any criminal. Call 911 to be report suspicious activity that is in progress. Tips for non-emergency situations can also be submitted online via the department's iWatch Baltimore County tip form.

Citizens are also invited to attend and join the Wilkens Police Community Relations Organization (WPCRO). Starting in September, the meetings will be 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.

Resources
