News from the Captain

I would like to thank our citizens for the outpouring of support we have received over the past several months in the form of inspirational notes, pictures, beverages, food, snacks and desserts. We have been amazed by the volume of support we have received and continue to receive from the citizens of the Wilkens Precinct. The bond between law enforcement and the citizens they serve plays an integral part in the success of our mission. It is my  hope that you continue to find comfort in knowing the men and women of Precinct One are here to serve you.

Citizens are invited to attend the Wilkens Police Community Relations Organization (WPCRO) meetings. They 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 these meeting and discuss what's happening in your community.

Remember to follow a few crime prevention tips to stay safe and call 911 in an emergency. Tips for non-emergency situations can also be submitted online via the department's iWatch Baltimore County tip form.


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.
