Message From Precinct Commander

As we approach the summer 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 check out the warm weather crime prevention tips below.

  • Record the make, model number, and serial number of all of your lawn equipment. Take pictures of the equipment and keep the information in a safe place.
  • Record the make, model number, and serial number of all of your bicycles. Take pictures of the bicycles 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.

Additional warm weather crime prevention tips for homeowners are posted on the Baltimore County Police Department's website.

Residents are urged to report suspicious persons, activity or vehicles immediately to police. Make your neighborhood an uncomfortable place for criminals.


  • Don’t become a victim of deception burglary or a scam to buy a "bargain" home repair. Follow these simple crime prevention tips.
