News from the Captain
One of the best deterrents against crime is an engaged community working cooperatively with the police and other public service agencies. We have that in the Towson Precinct. We have it in our residential communities and in our business communities.
From one side of the precinct to the other, Towson is home to some of the most well-organized community groups in the County. We have several community umbrella groups that help make this possible. Some of those umbrella groups are the Towson Area Citizens on Patrol, the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations (GTCCA), and the Towson Police Community Relations Council (PCRC). Each community group in this precinct does their part to help make our area a safe place to live, work and play.
Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
