News from the Captain
Residents are reminded of a few basic crime prevention tips as the weather gets warmer. Remember to lock your vehicle and remove any valuable property from inside. Always keep your home doors and windows locked, especially when you are not home. Be aware of deception burglaries where criminals claim to work for Baltimore County, the water department or BGE. While one suspect distracts the victim, the other suspect enters the home and steals money, jewelry and other valuable items. Home improvement scams also increase this time of the year. Suspects claim to be legitimate contractors offering low cost repair work or offer materials left over from a recent job at a discount price. If you need work done, use a reliable, licensed contractor.
Be aware of telephone scams where callers claim to be from the IRS and victims are told that they owe back taxes that must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. Always verify the legitimacy of a telephone call from anyone requesting money. Do not provide personal information until you have verified the call as being legitimate.
For additional security tips, contact your local Community Outreach Team to schedule a free Residential Home Security Survey.
Always call 911 to report suspicious persons, vehicles or activity to police.
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.
