Precinct 9/White Marsh
Captain Christopher Kelly
Lieutenant Dave Naimaster
News from the Captain
As spring arrives, many of us check on storage sheds and vacant properties that have been left unattended since the fall. Unfortunately, we may discover that those properties have been tampered with or burglarized. It is important to remember to take some simple preventative steps that may thwart would-be burglars. We cannot underestimate some simple fixes, such as replacing exterior light bulbs that have burned out or trimming shrubs and landscaping so as to not conceal windows or doorways. We ask that you follow some basic crime prevention and report suspicious persons, vehicles or activity to 911.
Community members are invited to attend the Police Community Relations Council (PCRC) meeting at the White Marsh Precinct located at 8220 Perry Hall Boulevard, 21236. The Council meets the second Tuesday of every month; no meeting is held in July and August. This is a good opportunity to learn about what is occurring in the community and what we can do to help improve the quality of life.
Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct's Community Outreach Team. 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.
