News from the Captain
As we approach warmer months and will be spending more time outdoors, it is important to take steps to keep you and your property safe. Please take a moment to practice the warm weather crime prevention tips listed below and posted online.
- Record the make, model number, and serial number of all of your lawn equipment and bicycles. Take pictures of the equipment and keep the information in a safe place.
- Keep your home and shed area properly lighted.
- Keep all doors and windows locked. Never leave your shed unsecure when you are not using it.
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.

During April, officer Remmers issued 69 citations, 40 warnings, and nine safety equipment repair orders. He also completed three field interview reports.
An example of officer Remmers’ outstanding police work is an incident he handled on April 14. Officer Remmers was conducting a business check at a local hotel when he located a subject in a room that was in possession of marijuana. Over $6400 in US currency and a large amount of jewelry was also recovered from the room. Some of that jewelry was found to have been taken in a theft from auto in Baltimore County and a burglary in Baltimore City.
Officer Remmers’ supervisor stated that he has a “desire to control crime and protect the citizens of Pikesville”.Thu, 28 May 2015 14:48:00 GMThttp://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/News/PoliceNews/Precincts/Precinct4/April2015OfficerofTheMonth
