News from the Captain

The Pikesville Precinct has had several vehicles stolen in the area as a result of them left running unattended with the keys in the ignition and doors unlocked.

Never leave your vehicle running and unattended to warm it up. Not only can it be stolen but it is against the law. You could face a $70 fine and a one point violation.


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.
