News from the Captain
Drivers are reminded to stop when the lights on a school bus are flashing. Maryland law states that vehicles must come to a complete stop on both sides of the street if there is no physical divider or barrier. Drivers who pass the bus before all lights have ceased flashing may face a fine and penalty. Allow room for the frequent stops that happen during the morning pick up and afternoon drop off.
With summer coming to an end, residents are reminded of a few basic crime prevention tips. Remember to lock your vehicle and remove any valuable property from inside. Always keep the doors and windows locked to your home, garage and shed, especially when you are not home. Lock up your bike or secure it inside when not riding it. 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. Be mindful of home improvement scams where suspects claim to be legitimate contractors offering low cost repair work or materials left over from a recent job at a discount price. If you need work done, use a reliable, licensed contractor.
For additional security tips, contact your local Community Outreach Team to schedule a free Residential Home Security Survey. The Community Outreach Team in the Parkville Precinct can be reached at 410-887-5439.
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.
