Precinct 6 – Towson
Captain Jay Landsman Jr.
Lieutenant Randy Guraleczka
News from the Captain
We are asking communities to help significantly reduce vehicle thefts in our precinct. Removing keys from the vehicle and eliminating the easy targets for opportunistic thieves is a critical first step in achieving this reduction. Additionally, the use of an old school anti-theft device like "the club," removing valuables from the vehicle, making sure that the vehicle is locked, and calling 911 immediately when you observe suspicious activity in your neighborhood will help us reduce incidents of theft and deter criminals altogether.
Thank you for caring so much about your neighborhoods.
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.
