News from the Captain

Everyone is invited to attend the monthly Police Community Relations Council (PCRC) meeting held the fourth Tuesday of the month, at the Christus Victor Lutheran Church located at 9833 Harford Road, 21234.

Many criminals count on not being seen or not being reported to police by people who do see them. Make your neighborhood an uncomfortable place for any criminal to be; report any suspicious persons, vehicles or conditions to police immediately.

Always strive to do the right thing and the right thing will happen.


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 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.
