Precinct 7 – Cockeysville
Captain John Young
Lieutenant Robert McGraw
News from the Captain
The county has experienced an increase in auto thefts with the keys left in the vehicle. These cases involve keys being left in the center console or other locations in the vehicle and, in some cases, involve valet keys being left in the glove box. Please lock your car doors and do not leave keys in the vehicle. This is a very preventable crime.
Car manufacturers have made great progress with key technologies that prevent vehicle theft without the keys. Please take advantage of that and remove your key from the vehicle. Remember to practice crime prevention measures as you go about your daily activities and make a conscious effort to remove the opportunity of crime.
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.
